When the town of Fuente Ovejuna is brutalized by a tyrannical commander, it falls on the shoulders of a young woman to ignite a rebellion.
Written by Lope de Vega, the “Spanish Shakespeare,” and based on historical events, this neglected classic from the Spanish Golden Age is as politically charged today as it was when it was written over four hundred years ago. Presented in Adrian Mitchell’s elegant translation, featuring original live music and a company of sixteen actors, Nylon Fusion Collective follows up last year’s ground-breaking production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with a dynamic re-telling of a play that has become a rallying cry for oppressed people around the world.
