What's On
Douglas McPherson
14th May 1997

Although [Life Is a Dream] is presented on a bare stage, the way it would have been during the golden age of Spanish theatre, there is nothing dated about this lively and ultimately inspiring production by Logos Theatre Company. Co-director Kenneth McClellan's revised version of Edward Fitzgerald's Victorian translation has a fresh, modern ring, and the play's themes of nature versus nurture and destiny versus choice are as relevant as ever.  McClellan himself heads a keen and expressive cast as King Basilius of Poland
