Morpheus, The God of Dreams, hasn’t felt their heart beat for a million years. To try to inspire themself to love again, they make a bet with Janus, the God of Transitions, with Morpheus' own heart on the line. The bet: Can Morpheus bring two humans together every night within the cafe of their dreams and lead them not only to fall in love but to find each other in reality, the one realm Morpheus can’t influence? Are these two meager humans capable of finding each other beyond their dreams, and will it be worth it? Will Morpheus' heart finally beat again, or will it remain numb and still? Join these dreamers in a magical theatrical journey of love and longing.
