Life is a Dream
by Calderon de la Barca, Adapted by Nilo Cruz

Astrological omens predict that if King Basilios’s son
Segismundo is crowned, he will become a horrible tyrant who will bring destruction to his kingdom. Basilio imprisons Segismundo for life, but decades later he decides to let his son prove his ability to defy the stars. Allowed to rule the palace, Segismundo wreaks bloody vengeance on the kingdom, confirming the prediction of the stars, and the prince is returned to prison. Is life a dream or merely an illusion?
