One of the most important plays from Spain’s Golden Age of Drama, Life is a Dream explores what shapes one Prince’s identity by exploring the life that he actually led versus the life he could have led. It is a wonderful companion to our production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew because the question of identity is at the core of both.
