Words Words Words Play Reading Series: “Life is a Dream” by Pedro Calderon de la Barca
March 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Closing installment of this season’s free Words Words Words Play Reading Series. Reading itself will be preceded by a short talk led by Dr. Gregory Hutcheson, an associate professor in Spanish in the Classical and Modern Languages department at the University of Louisville.
“Life is a Dream” focuses on the Segismundo, Prince of Poland, who has been imprisoned since birth in a tower by his father, King Basilio, following a dire prophecy that the prince would bring disaster to the country and death to the King. Basilio briefly frees Segismundo, but when the prince goes on a rampage, the king imprisons him again, persuading him that it was all a dream.
