FUENTE OVEJUNA is one of the most important plays by the Spanish Golden Age author Lope de Vega.

 

Although the play was written in verse in the 17th century, it’s staged in Ciudad Juarez in the 21st century.

 

It's the story of Comendador, a landowner who believes that he also owns the farmers who work his land.
In this version, the farm workers become maquiladora (factory) workers, the musicians are transformed into a mariachi trio
who share tequila with the townsfolk at Laurencia and Frondoso’s wedding, and the Comendador is portrayed as a ruthless drug dealer. 


"Dead tyrants and traitors. Traitors and tyrants dead."
("Mueran tiranos traidores. Tiranos traidores mueran").

 

The show is 90 minutes long with no intermission.
There will be an exhibition in the lobby.
It is performed in Spanish with English supertitles.
