Original play - "Dreaming Again" was the culminating event in Fences & Neighbors project

The Humanities Council commissioned a play as the culminating event in our Fences & Neighbors: New Hampshire's Immigration Stories three-year initiative.
The play, Dreaming Again, toured the state in April.


Dreaming Again is an original dramatic play written by Genevieve Aichele, Director of the New Hampshire Theatre Project, and based on the stories of Granite State immigrants and refugees, past and present. The play took shape from the authentic voices and experiences of immigrants and refugees who have resettled in New Hampshire over the past 100 years. Professional performerspresented the play in eight communities.


The tour began with a sold-out run in Portsmouth and played to enthusiastic audiences in Laconia, Manchester, Gorham, Concord, Dover, Keene, and Claremont.

Learn more about the play in this editorial that ran in the Keene Sentinel.

John and Pamela Blackford, Evans Printing, Red River Theatres and Hermanos Cocina Mexicana.
