Fuente Ovejuna (Off-Broadway, Theatre for a New Audience @ Polonsky Shakespeare Center, 2023) | Playbill

Fuente Ovejuna



The great Spanish Golden Age author Lope de Vega wrote Fuente Ovejuna in 1612 after he was inspired by a historical incident: farmers and peasants of the village of Fuente Ovejuna, led by one fearless woman, rose up against a military commander and his soldiers who routinely brutalized and oppressed them. Lope de Vega’s words have rung out for centuries. His genius was to create a powerful mix of music, singing, dance, humor, and unforgettable drama about feminism, class, collective resistance, and human rights.
