Powers New Voices Festival - Fuente Ovejuna


Fuente Ovejuna

Translated and Adapted by William S. Gregory and Daniel Jáquez

Friday, January 22 at 7:00 p.m.

Fuente Ovejuna by Lope de Vega is translated and adapted by William S. Gregory and Daniel Jáquez.  A classic of Spanish Golden Age literature, Fuente Ovejuna is a timeless story of honor and love brought to new life in this fresh translation.  Oppressed by a tyrannical leader, a group of townspeople band together band together to claim justice, dignity, and freedom for their town by any means necessary.  Based on the true story of an uprising in a southern Spanish town in 1477, Fuente Ovejuna bristles with action, humor, tragedy and humanity.

Only one ticket per household is needed.




Daniel Jáquez (Co-Translator and Co-Adaptor, Fuente Ovejuna) directed the Globe for All Tour of The Winter’s Tale in 2019. He is a Co-Founding Director of TuYo Theatre, a company that creates and produces theatre from a diverse Latinx perspective. He served as Artistic Director of Milagro in Oregon, and in New York he was Director of both INTAR Theatre’s young acting company and its New Works Lab, an annual festival for emerging Latinx playwrights. Jáquez, now based in San Diego, has directed and produced shows Off and Off Off Broadway, across the United States, and internationally. He believes that theatre matters because it builds empathy by bringing us together in one place to share an experience that reflects the human condition of people around us and around the world.
