Join us on our stunning sea-view lawn and watch the award winning and critically acclaimed Miracle Theatre perform their latest adaptation. There will be street food stalls, a well stocked bar and, if we’re lucky, a wonderful sunset to end the show!
An epic fable of love, war and destiny, full of passion and humour, from Cornwall’s award winning Miracle Theatre. Based on Calderon’s greatest play, La Vida Es Sueño, published 20 years after Shakespeare’s death Life’s a Dream is regarded as the jewel in the crown of Spain’s golden age of literature.
A young Woman, travelling through a wild and mountainous region, discovers a Prince who has been 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?
Touring since 1979, Miracle has a gained a reputation for producing fresh and truthful adaptions. By trimming the text to the bone and fleshing it out with original music, physical performance and a joyful use of language, Miracle guarantees inspiring entertainment that can be enjoyed by all generations.
