A Romanian Woman's Surreal Search for the American Dream: Waxing West
It's been almost 25 years since Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife were executed, but their reign of tyranny still haunts many Romanians. Among them is Daniela, a young woman arriving in New York to marry a businessman named Charlie. Daniela is trying to find herself, and being a mail-order bride was never in her plans. Still, she has dreams -- which are far better than the nightmares of life in Romania she still experiences. The ghosts of the Ceausescus appear in Daniela's visions as insatiable vampires, and offer surreal commentary on her journey towards the American Dream. Saviana Stanescu's play tackles serious subjects, but it handles them in a lighthearted and entertaining way, offering hope that Daniela, and the rest of Romania, will soon see better days.
