'La vida es sueño' by Calderón de la Barca

Segismundo, a prince, is imprisoned after his horoscope revealed that he will bring disaster to the country.

After almost a lifetime in prison, Segismundo is released to reign over the country, but turns rebellious and commits rape and murder. He is then drugged, re-imprisoned and told that the previous events were a dream, which brings him to question what parts of his life are reality and which are a dream. The play, Calderón’s most famous work, is considered an allegory about the human situation and the mystery of life.
