Who wouldn’t want a dream fixer!

Who wouldn’t want a dream fixer that can turn your dreams into reality!

OP SHOP DREAMS is a story for all those hip hop stars that spend their days making coffee, for the farmer who's stuck in the city, for the man who would be a hot shot advertising executive if he only he could afford a better suit - in short, this is a story about the dream of a different life that so many of us have.

Through the stereo at the City Op Shop, the mysterious, fast talking Dream Fixer broadcasts his message - he can make all your wildest dreams come true. Eternal hustler Shadow and his friends decide to hunt this Dream Fixer down and visit him in the hope of changing their lives. But just like trying on someone else’s jacket in the op shop, sometimes that new life fits perfectly and sometimes, no matter how hard you try, it just doesn’t fit.

And as for the Dream Fixer, who promises to fix everybody’s lives – is his life all that great?

The Hobson Street Theatre Company returns with their new production for 2015, OP SHOP DREAMS, presented by Auckland Live and Auckland City Mission and playing at the Herald Theatre from Wednesday 28 to Saturday 31 October at 7pm.

OP SHOP DREAMS is written by Patrick Spillane and the members of Hobson Street Theatre Company.

Gordon Campbell: On What Lessons The Greens Should Take From The Demise Of Winston Peters

Wondering about “if only" is one of those political games we all indulge in from time to time.
