Heart & Dagger presents A DREAM PLAY
"Everything can happen; everything is possible and likely" in August Strindberg's A DREAM PLAY presented by Heart & Dagger Productions.
Agnes, a daughter of the Vedic god Indra, descends to Earth to bear witness to problems of human beings. Following the logic of a dream in which characters merge, locations change in an instant and a locked door recurs obsessively-A DREAM PLAY is a potent mix of Freud plus Alice in Wonderland. "The characters split, double, multiply, evaporate, condense, dissolve and merge."
The world premiere of A DREAM PLAY was at The Swedish Theatre in 1907, six years after it was written. August Strindberg was a Swedish playwright, novelist, painter, and poet. He is the playwright of The Father, Miss Julie, and The Ghost Sonata. During the 1890s he spent significant time abroad engaged in scientific experiments and studies of the occult. Strindberg died in 1912 at the age of 63.
Heart & Dagger's A DREAM PLAY is directed by Melanie Garber (CRAVE/Heart & Dagger, PRISCILLA DREAMS THE ANSWER/Fresh Ink, AN AMERICAN PLAN/Happy Medium Theatre). Ms Garber's design team includes Cara Pacifico (Costumes & Props), Michael Clark Wonson (Lights), Steve Deptula (Sound).
