“What if Works’ first “dramatic curation”, Baseball Dreams, is taken from a mesmerizing collection of short stories, by former Miami Herald journalist and Cuban American novelist Ana Menendez; “In Cuba I was a German Shepherd”. The two-part story explores the phenomenon of parallel dreams with Part I taking place in 1935 as The Daughter recalls her nine-year old father’s relentless dream of becoming a future DiMaggio of the Cuban National League.

Unable to accept his own failings the Boy’s dream breaks apart, contributing to devastating consequences. Part II takes place in 1965 in which his nine-year old Daughter and her Mother, wait patiently by the seashore for his visit. They become unwitting spectators to the antics of two boys in the midst of a competitive pitching battle. After watching the thrills, spills and dangers generated by the boys the Girl is consumed with a dream that one day she, like the boys, will be able to play baseball.

Baseball Dreams is a simple, elegiac story, a parable filled with human conflict and compassion. Through its “dramatic curation” What if Works seeks to sustain the author’s work from the page, word-for-word while delivering an indelible experience through the intersection of spoken word, drama, music, movement and video.

 In conjunction with “Baseball Dreams” and in partnership with the Miami Dade Public Schools and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts What if Works will offer a series of writing and adaptation workshops in middle and high schools the results of which will be seen in the “Literary Stage & Screen Youth Festival in June 2020.
