Aboriginals do not demarcate between dream world and real world. For them world was formed in the dreams of the creator. Their Dreamtime myths make them believe that every feature of this earth exists in both realms. Through the course of play every character has dreams for one another, their community and culture. In their dreams they wait for their opportunity to be renewed. They dream of having proper housing facilities, access to education and career, support from the government and seek for acceptance of Aboriginals as citizens of their country. Dreams do have a reality in them as the aboriginal characters have greater acceptance of their situation in White Australia and have hopes in midst of all the obstacles.
Dream sequences has been used as a technique by Jane Harrison not only to reach the readers, the sub conscious mind of the character but also to make the reader aware of the character’s crave to be accepted from the white society .The paper talks about what dream means to an Aboriginal who is alienated in a white society with no opportunities left for them. It aims to make comparison of Dream sequences and real incidents of the play. It speaks of how dream has been a way to deal with the pain of the real world by the Aboriginals and how each of their dream gets fulfilled at the end of the play.
Key words: Dream, Reality, Colonization, Assimilation, Alienation, Belonging.
