of Life is a Dream
New Zealand Herald: "Vigorous and intense, Life's a Dream, written by Spaniard Pedro Calderon de la Barca in 1636 and set in Poland, is an exhilarating tragi-comic ride offering both brutality and humour, and this Silo Theatre production sets the right tone for both."
Theatreview: " . . . richly humorous and poetic, a good starting point for director Michael Hurst and his well-appointed cast. . . . Life is a Dream addresses [the theme] with skilfully crafted dramatic power. . . . all the performances are solid. . . . the distinct neo-classical, technological production values pack a solid Hurstian punch".
Metro: " . . . eight young actors under the direction of Michael Hurst throw themselves into this 17th-century Spanish play with such energy, you'd swear they believe their lives depend on it. . . . This is a production for actors to strut their physical stuff".
