Here's how the new work is billed: "On a balmy night in Miami, a soon-to-be mother, Sula, floats ashore on a car tire. Having braved a perilous journey to escape her native Haiti, Sula is determined to forge a better life in America for her unborn son. She soon finds safety in an apartment building that shelters refugees in need, joining a diverse community of immigrants, each with their own unique dreams and dilemmas. But even though the life she has hoped for seems within reach, Sula knows she can't outrun her demons forever. Laced with wisdom, wit and grace, Little Children Dream of God is a timely new drama about learning to start a new life by facing the one you left behind."

Directed by Giovanna Sardelli, the cast features Gilbert Cruz ("Sex and the City," "Girls") as Manuel, Carl Hendrick Louis (Off-Broadway's The King's Whore) as Toussaint and Man, Maurice Jones (Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar) as Joel, Crystal Lucas-Perry (Williamstown Theatre's Far From Heaven) as Madison, Chris Myers (Off-Broadway's An Octoroon) as Vishal, Deirdre O'Connell (Off-Broadway's By The Water) as Carolyn and Carra Patterson (Wit) as Sula.
