Sueño is Obie Award-winning playwright José Rivera’s translation and adaptation of Calderón de la Barca’s classic Life Is a Dream. Believing his infant son, Segismundo, to be cursed, King Basilio banishes him to the tower for life. When the prince is finally released at age 25 to claim his birthright, it becomes clear that his solitary upbringing has turned him into a monster. In a script that teeters between the absurd and the sublime, Rivera deftly weaves Calderón’s grand poetic riffs with deliciously jagged contemporary humor. Book-It Repertory Theatre co-Artistic Director Jane Jones directs.
