Description

A bilingual Spanish-English adaptation of the classical play by Lope de Vega that mirrors our current political climate: amid Ferdinand and Isabel’s reconquest of Spain, commander Fernán Gómez de Guzmán is installed in the village of Fuente Ovejuno. But when the general attempts to rape the local women, the villagers rise up and collectively resist. More information about the play is available online: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuenteovejuna and Fuente Ovejuna – Introduction.

Directed by Anna Estrada, visiting professor from the Institut de Teatre, Barcelona, Spain
