LIFE IS A DREAM - AN ADAPTATION
FEBRUARY 22-24 + MARCH 1-3 AT 8PM
DIRECTED BY TONY AWARD-WINNER DOMINIQUE SERRAND
About the production
Internationally celebrated guest director Dominique Serrand adapts Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s 1635 drama Life is a Dream, considered one of the greatest plays of the Spanish Golden age. Serrand reimagines this classic tale for an audience of today, focusing on timeless questions of destiny — what determines it, and whether we have the power to change it — and highlighting the illusionary nature of a surreal world not unlike our own, where truths are mutable, identities uncertain, and happy endings are never guaranteed.
