Description
In this classic drama, a young prince is condemned for all eternity to be shut away from his country and his birthright lest the horrors prophesied for him come true. Banished to a secret world high in the mountains and cut off from the sun, he can only dream of a life reversed: of palaces, empires, freedom - and revenge - Helen Edmundson's new version of Calderon's richly poetic, epic masterpiece, first performed in 1635, explores illusion, reality, fate and destiny against the backdrop of a mythical kingdom. Starring Dominic West from HBO's "The Wire" in the lead role it premieres on 13 October 2009 at Michael Grandage's Donmar Warehouse, currently the most celebrated theatre in London's West End.
