THE SPANISH WIVES: A GROOVY TALE OF PEACE, LOVE, AND RESTORATION

Genre: Drama
Written and directed by New York Theatre Award winner Aliza Shane

This groovy new show is based on Mary Griffith Pix' restoration piece THE SPANISH WIVES, having been completely reinvented and transplanted to the hippie streets of San Francisco, where the characters find themselves exploring their options in this quickly changing world. The Governor of Barcelona is now a college professor who is dipping his toes into the world of free love while still hoping to keep his marriage vows intact. But will the Professor's wife stay true to her husband? Meanwhile, their uptight houseguestis desperately trying to keep his own wife chained by her apron strings to the traditions of the past. But, feeling the pull of the times herself, she realizes she has made the wrong choice by abandoning her first love. Luckily, for her, he's returned, and with the help of a slightly unconventional personal Guru, has tracked her down to San Francisco to win her back.

The Cast...Nnamudi Amobi , Sarah Brill, Julia Coe, Rachael Palmer Jones, Justin Klose, Matthew Minor, Mateo Moreno, Julie Nelson, Courtney Reed, Miranda Shields, and Branan Whitehead
