The main character of our play, Lula, realizes that life is in fact a Stage and we are all performers in our own theatrical piece. Guided under the timely knowledge of her older brother, Ariel, Lula realizes that her dreams tap into her own capabilities and desires. She realizes that she does in fact hold the power to change her own life. Enlisting her 5 friends (Karin, Celia, Marc Antoine, Tobie and Violette) into her plan, they set out to strengthen each other and invest in the messages of their dreams.
In an old abandoned room at their school during their lunch hour, the 6 children begin their journey of transformation away from the critical guises of others. In their meeting the 6 children realize that they can dream and tap into the power of transforming themselves. They learn to overcome the things (such as their differences) that they have allowed to limit them in the past and use their own triumphs to empower each other.
The last act explores the power of friendship and the fear of change. With the joining of another child to make their group 7 (Eve), we see the pride the children share in having transformed themselves into those things in their deepest dreams. After much encouragement from each other, they all realize their potential to overcome any obstacle they may face.
