Off-Broadway


SYNOPSIS:

A masterpiece of the Spanish Golden Age, Fuente Ovejuna (1612) is a prophetically modern drama by Lope de Vega, history’s most prolific dramatist. It recounts a violent peasant uprising against an aristocratic lord who rapes socially powerless women with impunity and highlights the heroism of one remarkable woman who dares to lead as others shrink in fear. The heroine Laurencia’s brave stand foreshadows movements for systemic change and individual rights that occurred in the ages after Lope
