Fuente Ovejuna  

Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Fuente Ovejuna $12.72 ex GST
$13.99 inc GST
Dating from 1619, Fuente Ovejuna has gained classic status because of its undeniably stirring story of communal courage under extreme duress: the torture scene is genuinely gruelling. This new translation is by acclaimed director Laurence Boswell. It is published in the popular, bargain-priced Drama Classics series, with an introduction by Spanish theatre expert William Gregory. 

'Thrilling and moving, accessible and unusual, raw and intensely sophisticated.' International Herald Tribune

Lope de Vega (1562-1635), the most famous of the Spanish Golden Age playwrights, is allegedly the most prolific of all time with over 300 plays still surviving. The best-known outside Spain, apart from  Fuente Ovejuna, are Peribanez (c.1612), also published by NHB and also concerning a peasant who murders a Lord and The Dog in the Manger (c.1613), a comedy of intrigue.
