how ironic

I found this on the Euclid City website. How ironic that they would have listed a forum on foreclosures seeing they are the cause of many owners losing their houses.

Dobama Theatre proudly presents the World Premiere of Dream/Home by Sarah Morton. Dream/Home was commissioned by Dobama Theatre with the support of Cuyahoga Arts and Culture. Dream/Home deals with the impact of the current foreclosure crisis on middle-class homeowners.

Home ownership is part of the American Dream. But what happens when that Dream is no longer affordable? What happens to a community when a house is abandoned? Told in monologue form, Dream/Home is the story of nine Clevelanders whose lives are connected by a single home. When the home is foreclosed and abandoned, each character must struggle with unexpected repercussions on their neighborhood, their family, and their dreams for the future. Timely, provocative, and ultimately hopeful, Dream/Home peels back the layers of the Crisis to reveal the complicated and fragile lives underneath: the mortgage broker and the real estate agent, the community activist and the public school teacher, the neighbors who leave and the neighbors who stay. It also presents an unflinching look at the sellers and buyers of the American Dream and how their collective decisions put the city on a collision course to economic devastation.

Directed by Sonya Robbins and featuring a cast of nine talented actors: George Roth, Fabio Polanco, Alexis Floyd, Anne McEvoy, Tom White, Rodney Freeman, Kristi Little, Cathy Albers and Lisa Langford, Dream/Home opens May 15 at the Cleveland Play House, Brooks Theatre.
