Love triangles get bent out of shape when restless gods come out to play.

Relationships are complicated enough when only humans are involved — something the crew of the starship Athenia know plenty about. These children of a changing climate are no strangers to conflicts of the heart. And it seems there’s a lot of conflict going on, even out in space.

When an alien dust finds its way on board, the veil between realms begins to fray. Old gods of a long dead planet resume their own romantic bickering while ancient magic wreaks havoc across the ship. Grudges resurface, friends turn to enemies, unrequited love turns to passion — or does it? It’s kinda hard to tell with everyone at each other’s throats.

“I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.”

— Bottom, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Gentles, perchance you wonder at this show; but wonder on, till truth make all things plain. Yet We Sleep, We Dream is a romantic space-fantasy inspired by Shakespeare’s endearing hot mess, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Yet We Sleep, We Dream by JL Peridot releases digitally on 23 September 2023. Subscribe to JL’s low-noise newsletter for updates.
