From Spain Then and Now's website: "La vida es sueño/ Life is a Dream is Pedro Calderón de la Barca's most famous play and in the opinion of many the finest in the Spanish language. It is brilliantly constructed with several themes intertwined: Illusion (dreams)/reality, free will/predestination, the responsibility of monarchs/the art of governing, knowledge or experience/superstition, love/vengeance, honour/dishonour, loyalty/rebellion, justice/vengeance, prudence/ instinct, father/son conflict (with its Oedipus overtones), order/disorder." 

The play is in two acts and runs approximately 100 minutes with a 15-minute intermission. Tickets are pay-what-you-can at the door (suggested donation $10). Refreshments will be served after every performance.

All performances will be performed in English and supertitled in Spanish.
