The Oxford Spanish Play

SUMMARY

University of Oxford Student Company, The Oxford Spanish Play, brings an exciting new production of Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s masterpiece, Life is a Dream to the Playhouse stage.

The undisputed flagship of Spanish Golden Age theatre and considered the peer of plays such as Hamlet and Oedipus, Life is a Dream interweaves themes of power, destiny and love.

Locked up in a tower at birth by his father, Prince Segismundo’s future is doomed by a prophecy that pronounced him a disaster for the country. Now a grown man, the Prince is liberated by his father and given the chance to prove the prophecy wrong, but can he escape his fate?

This classic play was recently a sell-out hit at the Donmar Warehouse, and will be performed here in Spanish, accompanied by English surtitles.

Admission: £10.50(£9.50) – £15.50(£9.50)
