Theatre Review: ‘Little Children Dream of God,’ a Drama of Haitian Refugees

By Charles Isherwood

NEW YORK---The presence, or absence, of a presiding deity may be a question we all ponder from time to time, but it’s a matter of daily significance in “Little Children Dream of God,” a warm and fanciful drama by Jeff Augustin about a Haitian immigrant trying to forge a new life on the rough streets of Miami. Deirdre O’Connell, an Off Broadway stalwart recently seen on TV’s “The Affair,” plays the supernaturally maternal Carolyn, mother to 11 children. Their father? None other than God himself, according to Carolyn, who casually tells as much to anyone who asks. [link]
