Your Wildest Dreams

The Cast and Crew of Your Wildest Dreams and Theatre Network would like to dedicate this production to the memory of Murray McCune.

The Almighty has given Adam and Eve every opportunity to redeem themselves by making the world right for lovers – and they continue to mess up (remember Antony and Cleopatra, Romeo and Juliet?).  They are given one last chance – save the marriage of Ted and Fern Limpet, or else!
