The Kraine Theatre

The frailty of the American dream and the absurdity of our war on terror are central in this provocative new play. A psychedelic trip, While Chasing the Fantastic… reveals itself through the subconscious and waking lives of it’s characters to beget the question: In a society that fears the unknown, how can we separate what is real from what is illusionary?

“Playwright Derek Ahonen takes the subjects of terrorism, trust infidelity and responsibility and uses them as the building blocks for his fascinating (and quite topical) While Chasing the Fantastic.”


“Their style of production demands a response and leaves an indelible mark on the theatergoer’s consciousness. It’s a trip worth taking.”
