Fuente Ovejuna

Huntington University Theatre Company presents Fuente Ovejuna by Lope de Vega, translated by Adrian Mitchell, directed by Adam Sahli.

November 13 at 7:30 p.m., November 14 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Performed in the Merillat Centre for the Arts - Zurcher Auditorium.

One of the best-known Spanish Golden Age plays comes to the HU stage! When a small town becomes fed up with the tyranny and abuse of a brutal military commander, they decide to take matters into their own hands. When an inquisitor comes to investigate the uprising, the townspeople display a show of solidarity that gains the attention of even King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, causing them to view the responsibility of leaders from a new perspective.
