Set in 1635, Segismundo’s father the king of Poland, decides to test a prophecy that his unborn son, the prince Segismundo is pure evil and will bring disastrous havoc to his kingdom. On his birth the king drugs the infant and puts him in jail. The king goes on and tells his court that his child has died after child birth. Years later after his son has grown, the king tells his court that his son is infact alive.
He has Segismundo drugged and brought to the palace, arguing that “tendencies can be constrained”. Instead when freed from dungeon Segismundo proves his father right by throwing a servant of the balcony, attempting a rape and acting as he was savage feral animal.
The king has Segismundo drugged again and put behind bars, but it's in the third part where things get interesting.
Yo sueño que estoy aquí
I dream that I am here
It’s really good play and if you get time, I would adivice you to go and see it you’ll love it.
It's play in the end about free will and fate.
The end is good and I am not going to ruin it
