- AN ADAPTATION OF PEDRO CALDERÓN DE LA BARCA’S PLAY BY MARÍA IRENE FORNÉS
- DIRECTED BY STEVIE WALKER-WEBB
Long, long ago, in a far off kingdom, Segismund, the rightful prince, has spent his life locked in a tower because of a prophecy that he will destroy the realm. When a mysterious visitor arrives, Segismund gets his first chance at freedom–or so he thinks. Calderón’s revered 17th century philosophical play Life is Dream is adapted here with contemporary resonance by legendary master of absurdity and subconscious María Irene Fornés. The tale of power, love, and illusion questions: What is life? A frenzy? An illusion? A dream.
