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: The 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!
