A Dream Play

Caryl Churchill's Adaptation of Strindberg's Original Play
Directed by Paul Robinson

'A young woman comes from another world to see if life is really as difficult as people make it out to be'.

'Everything can happen, everything is possible and probable. Time and place do not exist; the imagination spins, weaving new patterns... a mixture of memories, experiences, free associations, absurdities and improvisations'.

August Strindberg

Caryl Churchill's adaptation of Strindberg’s original play was first staged by Katie Mitchell at the National Theatre in February 2005.
