Lope de Vega's Like Sheep to Water, or Fuente Ovejuna is set to close Trinity Repertory Company's season. Translated and adapted by Curt Columbus and directed by Mark Valdez, the production runs through June 11.
The show is described as follows: "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."
