A Review of “Dreams of the Defeated”

Below is a new review of my first play, “Dreams of the Defeated: A Play in Two Acts”


“Joel D. Hirst fathers the genius creation titled Dreams of The Defeated, a two-act play that extends from the pages and into our lives. Written in the form of a play, Dreams of the Defeated by Joel Hirst completes the checklist of what makes a good dystopian story. A hero who is fighting the status quo, a society that has been controlled by propaganda and devoid of independent thought, and the brazen boldness to call society out. Read it before it becomes a movie.”
