Life is a Dream 

by Pedro Calderón, translated & adapted by Nilo Cruz

Directed by Dr. Wind Dell Woods

PERFORMANCES:

Oct 29, 30 - 7:30pm

Nov 4, 5, 6 - 7:30 pm; Nov 6 - 2pm

A baroque mix of revolutionary politics, pop culture and semiotics based on the play by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. A young prince learns that life is just a dream from which we wake when we die. And that dreams may be as real as life. 

The play's central themes are the conflict between free will and fate, as well as restoring one's honor. It remains one of Calderón's best-known and most studied works, and was listed as one of the 40 greatest plays of all time in The Independent.

Spring 2022 Production

Indecent by Paula Vogel

A deeply moving play inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance—a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel. INDECENT charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
