A Spanish court comedy, written in 1613-15.

Diana, Countess of Belfor, a beautiful and headstrong young woman, is beset by aristocratic suitors urging marriage but refuses them all. One-night she discovers her handsome young secretary seducing her favourite lady in waiting and is consumed with jealousy. A heartbreaking love triangle is forged and so begins a tale of forbidden love, envy and passion. The Dog in the Manger is a painful and hilarious comedy for anyone who has ever fallen in love with someone they shouldn’t have.

Lope de Vega  (1562 – 1635) was a  Spanish  playwright and poet. He was one of the key figures in the  Spanish   Golden Century   Baroque  literature. His reputation in the world of  Spanish  literature is second only to that of  Cervantes , while the sheer volume of his literary output is unequalled, making him one of the most prolific authors in the history of literature.
