Life Is A Dream

Presented by Trevecca Nazarene University at Theatre at Trevecca - Benson Auditorium, Nashville TN

Mar 18 - 27 2022
Life Is A Dream

Trevecca Theatre’s 2021-22 season theme, Season 180°, is about trading places.  It’s about walking in someone else’s shoes.  A transposition of contrasting lives, leading protagonists to experience, as never before, the jarring realities of the opposing point of view.  And, so, the shows this season, each in their own unique way, focus on adaptations of stories where characters’ lives are flipped and understanding is opened!

The month of March will feature Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s Life is A Dream in a wonderful, fairly new translation/adaptation by Nilo Cruz.

On the heels of Shakespeare, during the Spanish Golden Age, Calderón brilliantly captured some of the most profound questions of life through his stories onstage. Trevecca Theatre will inaugurate the spring with one of Calderón’s most well-known and frequently anthologized works—a stunning, perception-shifting tale that’s been translated by scores of writers over the years. Experience the very best this work has to offer in a beautiful rendition by recent Pulitzer Prize-winner Nilo Cruz, who edits and transforms the dialogue into something rich and immensely accessible for modern audiences using a language as strikingly beautiful as the original Spanish text.

Oh, and bring some tissues!
