How do you stage a dream? Agnes, a girl from “beyond,” possibly an angel or goddess comes to Earth and becomes trapped by the sufferings and cruelties of mankind. Images and characters merge and separate, locations change in an instant, and a locked door recurs obsessively. A Dream Play is a captivating mix of Freud, Alice in Wonderland, and Strindberg’s own personal symbolism.
