"The eye of man hath not heard, the ear of man hath not seen, man's hand is not able to taste, his tongue to conceive, nor his heart to report, what my dream was."

This was an extraordinary and delightful evening in The Swan. An Indian multi-lingual production by Dash Arts, funded by the British Council, Tim Supple's Dream is a sensual pleasure from beginning to end. It deserves its rave reviews, and was rapidly sold out - but it may come back to Stratford and to London. If it does, DON'T MISS IT!

Gordon Parsons wrote in the Morning Star,

" ...a cultural remake of the Dream, totally true to the spirit of the play we know.
... through its colourful vivacity, its strangeness to the British eye and ear, and the total commitment of a cast to a play largely untrammelled by the weight of tradition, it must be the kind of theatre experience that the Bard's first audiences must have relished."

Personal Star Rating [out of five] *****
