Fuente Ovejuna
By Lope de Vega, translated by Adrian Mitchell
This Production is the New York Premiere of Adrian Mitchell’s Translation
Directed by Flordelino Lagundino
April 29 – May 28, 2023

For the first time, TFANA will produce the work of the Spanish Golden Age author Lope de Vega. His masterpiece, Fuente Ovejuna (1612) is a prophetically modern drama by history’s most prolific dramatist. The play recounts a violent peasant uprising against an aristocratic lord who rapes socially powerless women with impunity and highlights the heroism of one remarkable woman who dares to lead. The heroine Laurencia’s brave stand foreshadows future movements for systemic change and individual rights.

The exciting young director Flordelino Lagundino makes his TFANA debut.
