How would you feel if you discovered that your life, your identity and the content of your memory were based on a trick of the mind, a powerful illusion, a dream? How would you feel if you learned that your future was being determined by political manipulation, paranoid superstition and the capricious swings of a volatile personality? Four centuries after it was written, Calderón’s play presents a world strikingly like our own – a world of spin and international conflict, where those in power live in fear of being overthrown. A playful, poetic and powerful thriller about life, love and liberty. Rough Magic presents a provocative contemporary production of one of the greatest plays of the European theatre.
