Read Synopsis

Lydie Breeze is a play about a group of dreamers who retreat to Nantucket after serving in the Civil War to create a Utopian society, who are unable to realize their dream because they refuse to acknowledge and accept their past.  As John Guare describes it, Lydie Breeze “traces the spiritual course of the United States from the post-Civil War to the 20th century- the moment in history when its (American) innocence was slowly being transformed by sordid experience and adventurism.”
