You cannot choose your family and you certainly cannot escape their influence. In Each Day Dies with Sleep, a young woman cursed with prophetic dreams learns this the hard way. Deftly combining elements of magical realism, surrealism, and expressionism, playwright José Rivera proffers an alternate reality where the family home cancerously expands, and violence reigns. It is a world where a father whose monomaniacal control over his offspring is threatened by his new son-in law; in which basest human instincts can only ever be temporarily subdued. Mining the very core of what it means to be both carnal and civilized Each Day Dies with Sleep is at times sexy, crass, lyrical, and twisted—but always vivid.

“Its conception of the human condition as a psychic battleground—lively, funny, erotic, tragic—has a rare force.” Alastair Macaulay, Financial Times
