I think this is hilarious.
There’s a play currently running at London’s Barbican Theatre that’s designed to put you to sleep. Like in a bed. For the night. It’s called "Lullaby". It only goes until July 24 this year, but I’m sure if it’s a success it will be back. (It’s possible this is not the first year for the play, I can’t tell.)
It’s a sleepy, dreamy performance, with cast members in surreal costumes slowly spinning and dancing around, reading bedtime stories, doing magic tricks and singing lullabies. You have to just watch the video to get the picture, but basically the audience lies in very comfortable beds and watches a play that is made to put them to sleep. Some of it looks like it might induce nightmares rather than peaceful slumber (dancing octopuses), but the rest seems very nice and dreamy (friendly moons). I’m sure it’s fun. In the morning, they even serve you breakfast.
All in all, I think it sounds like a fun experience and I give the creators much respect for coming up with the idea and actually pulling it off. As adults, we don’t very often get the chance to be lulled to sleep anymore. It's a nice treat. That said, I feel like waking up in the morning in a theater with a bunch of strangers in beds around you would be a little awkward.
