Sand (1985)

Sandglass Theater came together around “Sand,” the first piece of the Heaven Trilogy of pieces dealing with the weight of history on our lives. “Sand” is a dream play, in which the bringer of dreams, the proverbial Sandman, takes many faces. “Sand” is the very stuff that these dreams are made of: sand, like the sands of the hour glass, or the sands of Time itself. And in this dream world of sand, two lovers see their relationship and their self-images played out, and thereby altered.
