When a prophecy decrees that the heir to the throne will upend the kingdom, the king imprisons his only child, dooming the prince to a life in isolation. Warring factions struggle for dominance as the line between reality and fantasy blurs: were the memories of the newly freed prince just a dream? Our world premiere reimagining of this Spanish Golden Age classic asks, “How do we activate change in our own kingdom?” Created in collaboration with Colombian writer and director, Felipe Vergara.

"Vergara opens a window for the audience to absorb the play, leaving them to take away their own interpretations." - The Temple News

AbouPedro Calderón de la Barca

Pedro Calderón de la Barca (b. 1600, d. 1681) was a dramatist and poet who was considered the greatest Spanish playwright of the Golden Age. 

Calderón wrote mostly secular dramas written for commercial theaters as well as mythological plays for the palace theaters and one act allegories illustrating the mystery of the Eucharist. Calderón's work depicted vital pessimism that was often rationalized by his faith in God.
