The Gate’s 2010 Lulu was a runaway success.

This summer, Lulu adaptor and director Anna Ledwich returns with a hypnotic new re-imagining of Arthur Schnitzler’s DREAM STORY, the novella that inspired Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.

Through a simple sexual admission, a husband and wife are driven apart into rival world of erotic revenge. Their mutual confessions signal a surrendering to their most illicit fantasies, feeding an extraordinary and dangerous sexual awakening. Leave your inhibitions at the door and join us for a night to remember.
19 June - 16 July 2011
“Ledwich has turned the novella into a cool but nightmarish four-hander, which draws us into its antihero’s sexual imagination with miasmic effectiveness.”
The Guardian

“[Anna Ledwich] powerfully recreated Schnitzler’s tale of passion and healing wisdom.”
