Life is a Dream

by Pedro Calderón de la Barca
Uncut Pages Theatre Company

Is our fate determined by the stars? Segismundo has spent his whole life imprisoned in a rocky tower until he wakes one morning in a palace and is told he is the crown Prince of Poland and master of all he sees. Is this a dream? What dark secret has kept Segismundo locked away all these years with only an old courtier for company?

With deft poetry and stinging comedy, this 17-century bolckbuster by Pedro Calderón de la Barca - the Shakespeare of Spain - forces us to examine how our actions can create the enemies we fear the most.
