"All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” —Martin Buber

Unpacking stories of great and small adventures, brave departures, wrenching farewells, and the things that travelers choose to carry. Theatre LILA weaves drama, comedy, absurdity, and fantasy with their signature physical style and live music.

The Suitcase Dreams was created by Tony Award-winning actress Karen Olivo, acclaimed New York City director Tyler Marchant, nationally produced playwright Gwendolyn Rice, and Theatre LILA Co-Artistic Directors Jessica Lanius and Mike Lawler.
