University of Arkansas Theatre's Jeremiah Albers is directing the department's production of the 17th century Spanish classic "Life Is a Dream," written by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. It's something he never would have predicted upon his first reading of the play as an undergraduate: He hated it, he says, finding it "too talky" and "heavy-handed." It wasn't until he was cast in a production of the Spanish Golden Age drama several years later that he fell in love with the work.
