By Lope de Vega
Directed by Mariano De Paco Serrano
A corrupt leader… An unwavering woman… A fed up town… A compelling story of community empowerment.
From October 7 to October 23, 2022
Performed in Spanish Verse with Overtitles in English
At 36th Street Chain Theatre, 3rd Floor
Given the rise in autocracies around the world and voter suppression bills pending in 49 states in the United States, Teatro Círculo – a bilingual Latino theatre company in NYC – has chosen Fuente Ovejuna, known for its stirring depiction and critique of the abuse of power, to underscore the very real threats that oppressive authoritarian rule presents to any government system that honors community participation.
For too long, the peasants of Fuente Ovejuna have meekly endured the tyranny of their lecherous overlord, but when one woman stands up in defense of her honor, the townspeople are galvanized at last into rebellion. As authorities enter the scene to try to find the perpetrator, what happens next is one of the most memorable acts of resistance in world drama!
