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.

If you dream of being in an old-fashioned theater, you will have pleasure in the company of new friends. You will probably find that things in your life run quite smoothly shortly after this dream.

If you dream of watching a play in a theatre, one of your male friends is interested in a more romantic relationship with you. You may date him for social reasons, even if you don’t like him that way.

If you dream that you are acting in a play, these happy times will be interrupted by something annoying.

If you applaud and laugh at a theatre, you will avoid responsibility to chase after your whims. Dreaming of being an actor/actress can also mean that you have been dishonest, with others or yourself.

If it’s a pleasant dream, lying has worked in your favor, but it could have bad consequences. Watching actors in a dream means you feel out of control. Meeting an actor warns of a false friend coming into your life.

If you have trouble getting to or from a play in your dream, or if there are upsetting or weird scenes in the play, you will be confronted with unpleasant surprises.

If you have to escape from a theater in your dream, because of a fire or another danger, it is a signal that you will engage in a risky enterprise in real life.... My Dream Interpretation

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. ...
