A Sleep of Prisoners
by Christopher Fry (author of The Lady’s Not for Burning)

Four prisoners of war are being held in a church. It is night: they fall asleep; they dream. Christopher Fry writes: “In A Sleep of Prisoners I have tried to make a more simple statement, though in a complicated design where each of the four men is seen through the sleeping thoughts of others, and each, in his own dream, speaks as at heart he is, not as he believes himself to be. In the later part of Corporal Adams’ dream the dream changes to a state of thought entered into by all the sleeping men, as though, sharing their prison life, they shared, for a few moments of the night, their sleeping life also.”
