Synopsis


'Tell me - is this a dream?'


The night before going into battle the Prince of Homburg goes sleepwalking: dreaming of love, ambition and victory.


As the morning comes, a reckless act of disobedience sets in motion a chain of events that leads to her worst nightmare.


In this radical and modern retelling of Kleist's classic 'The Prince of Homburg', the story is placed in 2019, into a world which could be ours, but somehow feels like a dream.


Freely adapted from Neil Bartlett's translation with a gender-swapped lead, this production asks what we do when the reality around us becomes confusing and chaotic - do we follow orders or instinct?


What does it mean for a woman of today to dream and aspire to love and power in a society built on old laws?


Do we actively stand up for what we believe in or passively go on as before?
