To dream that you are playing, suggests your tendency to go against the norm and break the rules of convention. You have unrestricted creativity. Alternatively, it may be an indication that you are all work and no play. You need to relax and let loose. Or that you are not taking things seriously enough. You need to face reality. To dream that you are in a play, represents the parts you play in your life and the various acts and personas you put on. If you are watching the play, then it suggests that you need to draw from the inspiration of others.
