INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE | SPOTLIGHT ITALY
Synopsis

The Stuff of Dreams recounts the vicissitudes of a modest theatrical troupe castaway off the coast of a remote Mediterranean island together with dangerous members of the Camorra. From this premise develops a comedy full of plot twists, inspired by William Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Eduardo De Filippo’s Neapolitan translation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece, all set amongst the pristine scenery of the island of Asinara.

The core of the story is the universal theatre: through a sequence of events involving the theatre company, suddenly growing in number with the “illegal” entrance of the ferocious Camorra mobsters, its most profound narrative comes to light, drawing upon the universal themes of love, crime, revenge, redemption and forgiveness.
