LOVE, REVENGE, DREAMS, AND FORGIVENESS
A humorous and haunting metaphysical story peppered with intentional anachronisms, Sueño is a contemporary English-language re-imagining of Life is a Dream, considered one of the jewels of the Spanish Golden Age. Years after a Spanish prince is imprisoned at birth based on astrological predictions, the young man is released to test the prophesies. Once freed, his actions could either earn him the throne or return him to a lifetime of isolation to question the very nature of reality and humanity.
