Casanova Dreaming

Edinburgh Fringe, August 2018

“the greatest master of all is Passion”

Asleep in bed with his first true love, nineteen-year old Giacomo Casanova is visited by an old man who shows him his future – but is what he sees a promise or a warning?

In this one-act drama playwright and director Martin Foreman revealed the life of the famous eighteenth-century libertine – a life more complex and varied than legend relates. One of several of Foreman’s plays exploring themes of love, loss and death in the city of Venice. 

With Patrick Bergamo (left) as Casanova and Creighton King (right) as the Chevalier de Seingalt. Beverley Wright (centre), Junior Cross, Michael Robert-Brown, Sarah Stanton and Polina Sulim played all other roles.
