WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A modern, music-infused retelling of the classic Spanish story of tyranny overthrown. In 15th-century Spain, a menacing Commander terrorizes a small town's citizens — especially the women. Pushed to their limit, the people of Fuente Ovejuna rise up against their oppressor in a fierce act of unity and bravery. Based on actual events, the story was immortalized by one of Spain's greatest and most influential Golden Age dramatists. Now, Trinity Rep's adaptation of this timeless masterpiece reverberates with fresh urgency.
