Victor is a typical eight-year-old boy plagued by a common childhood malady - nightmares. In this one-act musical we follow Victor through the course of an evening, beginning at his dreaded bedtime, and into and out of a series of nightmares peopled by the various monsters of Victor's imagination. Mom and Dad enter and exit between nightmares, adapting the usual parental stance of vacillation between calm rationale and sheer exasperation. In love, concern, and obvious frustration, they offer sometimes pedantic, sometimes simplistic, and sometimes sound advice - realizing full well that in the end, it is Victor who must resolve his own problem. And he does - as he learns to recognize that he is both the author and director of his dreams. And with Victor, the child in the audience will discover in a subtle way that there is a very real connection between our dreams and our waking reality.
