A young woman travelling through a wild and mountainous region discovers a Prince, imprisoned by his father since birth to foil a prophecy that he will bring disaster to the world and death to the King. Prompted by the woman, the King is overcome with remorse and sets his son free, giving him the chance to prove his good character. But is it ever possible to escape one’s fate? Published twenty years after Shakespeare’s death and regarded as the jewel in the crown of Spain’s golden age of literature, Calderon’s greatest play, ‘La Vida Es Sueño’ provides the inspiration for an epic fable of love, war and destiny, full of passion and humour from award winning Cornish favourites Miracle.
