The second installment of an ambitious three-part series by Toy Factory, A Dream Under the Southern Bough: Reverie follows its predecessor, The Beginning, from SIFA 2018 as Chun Yu Fen continues his fantastical journey into the Ant Kingdom.

The dream world is an often-explored motif in the greatest works of Ming playwright Tang Xianzu, including A Dream Under the Southern Bough. Hailed as the Shakespeare of the East, Tang’s romantic view of love and dreams were a foil against the feudal conventions of his time.

Bringing Tang’s lyrical play to the modern stage, Toy Factory presents the highly-anticipated second part of this tale in A Dream Under the Southern Bough: Reverie, as disgraced naval officer Chun Yu Fen falls asleep and is thrust into the Ant Kingdom.

In the ensuing 22 chapters of this wondrous journey, Chun finds himself in a situation beyond his wildest dreams, now betrothed to the Kingdom’s princess and the newly appointed governor of the Southern Bough. It appears to be a time for revelry – but trouble is brewing and inching ever closer.

From the vision of award-winning Goh Boon Teck, don’t miss this enchanting installment of Reverie, which meets its dramatic culmination in Existence, to be presented in SIFA 2020.

继2018年新加坡国际艺术节的《南柯一梦》之入梦后,TOY肥料厂明年继续推出其雄心勃勃之作《南柯一梦》三部曲之第二部 “如梦”。此次,淳于棼将继续他在蚂蚁王国的梦幻旅程。 

梦,是明代剧作家汤显祖最为珍爱的主题,在他最伟大的几部作品包括《南柯记》在内,都与梦相关。有东方莎士比亚之誉的汤显祖,对爱情与梦境的浪漫观点与他所处封建时代的思维大相径庭。

TOY肥料厂再一次将汤显祖的如歌作品搬上现代戏剧舞台,接续推出备受期待的《南柯一梦》第二部“如梦”,描述那遭罢免的海军军官淳于棼酒后睡着入梦,被带往蚂蚁王国去。

在紧接的22个章节的奇幻旅程中,淳于棼赫然发现自己身处在一个超出他想象的梦境里——自己不仅同公主订亲,还被委任为南柯郡太守。然而,在这个看似值得狂欢之际,种种的麻烦与问题正悄悄地酝酿逼近。

依旧由吴文德执导的《南柯一梦》之第二部“如梦”,将继续以婉约旖旎之姿呈献,同时,已定在2020年推出的三部曲之完结篇“辱梦”将全然推袭《南柯一梦》之作的巅峰高潮!
