Decription: Solar power confronts spirit power in a new drama by Stephen Sachs about climate change, cultural change and the moral consequences of personal choice. Cameron Watson directs Elizabeth Frances and Brian Tichnell in the world premiere of Dream Catcher, opening January 30 at the Fountain Theatre in Hollywood.

Roy is the youngest member on a team of high-level engineers brought in to launch the most important project of his career -- the construction of a solar energy plant in the middle of the Mojave Desert -- when the sudden discovery of long-buried Native American artifacts threatens to bring the billion-dollar operation to a halt. The disaster gets deeply personal when the whistle-blower turns out to be Opal, the fiery and unpredictable young Mojave Indian woman with whom Roy has been having an affair.

Inspired by a true event, Sachs wanted to address global warming, climate change and other large issues but weave them into something personal and intimate.

I've always been interested in the battle between science and spirituality, and where they intersect," he says. "How they are similar, each relying on a kind of faith to explain what we sometimes cannot see. And the paradox of moral certainty. Even when we're campaigning for something good, sometimes we're forced to discover that we are not who we think we are."

"This play is messy, complicated, volatile and exciting," says Watson. "There's no right or wrong, no bad guy - at least not for the obvious reasons. The muscularity of it got my attention right away. As soon as I read it, I knew I had to be involved, which doesn't happen often."

Running from Jan. 30 - March 21.
