Nightmares and Dreams: Immigrant Voices is a short play written and performed by a group of 5 to 12 Vineyardwomen from six different Latin American countries: Brazil, Chile, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Ecuador, and Uruguay. The play was created in an adult education conversational English class using theater exercises, music, and literature as creative and effective learning tools. The troupe, supported in part by a grant from the Local Arts Lottery Mass Cultural Council, decided to bring the play out of the classroom and into the community as a forum piece to stimulate discussion on immigration issues on the Island, and to promote awareness.

On October 31, five members of the group (Maribel Umpiérrez Adams, Lorena Crespo, Lynn Ditchfield, teacher/director, Patty Gallardo, Christina Montoya, choreographer) performed the play, shared a power point presentation of the process, and led a discussion for a conference hosted by the Harvard Graduate School of Education Arts in Education Program.
