Fuente Ovejuna!

Date: 18 Feb 2021

From Spain’s Golden Age comes Lope de Vega’s Fuente Ovejuna, the radical true story of a small town in Spain crushed under the heel of a ruthless commander – until one young woman decides ‘no more …’

An eternal reminder to the rich and powerful that when the sheep bind together, the wolf should cower in fear.

Dream Plane revisits a rich text that forms the bedrock of Spanish Theatre, one that put the ordinary people of Spain front and centre, giving a voice to their anger. In it, Lope de Vega also gave us one of the fiercest heroines of classic literature. The play has since been a rallying point for revolutions since.

In a colourful and exciting new vision that is sure to make the academics squirm in their graves, audiences in Sydney will get to experience Fuente Ovejuna! on stage through ritualistic storytelling with masks, magic, puppets, devised performance and live music.

Angus Evans directs. James Bean, Tristan Black, Julia Christensen, Steve Corner, Shayne de Groot, Dominique de Marco, Lucinda Howes, Suzann James, Martin Quinn, Davey Seagle, Idam Sondhi, and Madeleine Withington feature.
