Powers New Voices Festival - Fuente Ovejuna

Summary

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.
