Life is a Dream

By Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Adpated by Helen Edmundson

"The bird is born and straightaway,
leaving the confines of his nest,
soars into the sky with boundless joy...
I have more soul than any bird
and yet must I have less freedom?"
Segismundo, a Prince enslaved from birth by a fatalistic prophecy, is given his chance for freedom, but how can the oppressed be freed without becoming the oppressor? Life is a Dream, Calderon's 16th century poetic masterpiece, is brought to life in a modern adaptation by Helen Edmundson. CBU's production sets this classic tale in mythical Arabia, aiming to deepen the conversation and bring awareness to the deadly concoction of religion, prophecy, power, and fear.
