Oxford Student Company‘s performance of A Dream Play by August Strindberg (Ett drömspel 1902) at Oxford Playhouse was an enjoyable treat, though I missed some of my favourite lines.
Agnes, the daughter of the god and creator Indra, is dreaming. In her dream she falls down to Earth and has to cope with the strain of day-to-day life.
This production is not close to the original text, yet they express the essential feeling in the play.
About 20 years ago when I played the Laywer (Advokaten) myself I really loved the play. Watching Oxford Student Company’s performance was a great evocative experience.
