Dreams of a theatrical play represent your desire to present yourself to the world, to take your thoughts and feelings from behind the scenes of your mind and heart and display them in the spotlight of center stage.

If you dream of acting in a play or watching a theatrical production, then this represents objectivity in your ability to witness the roles you play in life. This dream may be reminding you that you are the writer, director and star of this show, so if you don’t like the direction that the play is headed, then you have the power to change it.

If you dream of playing, as in a child at a park, then this represents that you are in touch with your creativity, freedom, and unique expression.

If someone is playing a game, such as chess or checkers, then you are becoming aware of the aspect of you that can be strategic and manipulative in your desire to win. Consider the feeling tone of this dream. See Stage and Script.

My Dream Interpretation by
According to Freud, one of the major pro­cesses of the unconscious is condensation. This means that within one element in a dream, such as the strange room we dream we are in or the unusual name a person has in the dream, are condensed many associated emotions, memories or ideas. Talking about a peapod which appeared as part of her imagery, Constance Newland shows how it represented her father’s penis.

The pea associated with pee or urine, and the pod with a seed carrier, the testicles. Freud gives the ex­ample of a patient who dreamt he was kissed by his uncle in an ‘auto’.

The patient immediately gave his own association as auto-eroticism.

A psychologist whose patient dreamt she was going on a trip on a boat called Ncwland, correctly inferred that the patient was getting better, because the name sug­gested new territory traversed. One woman dreamt about a busy intersection, and realised it was referring to inter-sex-on.

So we need to consider how unconsciously we might be playing with words, then check if this helps us gain insight. Also, phrases are used in the same way. We might see such words as ‘1 felt a prick’, keeping it up was difficult’, ‘dead end’ and so on, in writing down our dream. See names of people; introduction to colours.
