Program

Life Is a Dream:  A play by Pedro Calderon.  Translated and adapted by Nilo Cruz.  Directed by Marc Williams.  Perhaps the most revered work of the Spanish Golden Age, Life is a Dream is set in the castle of Basilio. Fearing his son would grow to overthrow the kingdom, Basilio long ago locked him away, guarded only by the king’s loyal subject, Clotaldo. But the arrival of a mysterious stranger, her wise-cracking servant, and two would-be heirs to the throne sets in motion a series of events that will change all their lives forever, and call into question the nature of life itself.
