In 1472, the villagers of Fuente Ovejuna stood up to a tyrant and inspired a nation. Famous for its revolutionary fervour and bucolic joy, Fuente Ovejuna is one of the great masterpieces of the Spanish Golden Age.
Performed by an eleven strong ensemble of London’s finest (actors) on a bare stage, a live band every night and an irreverent selection of props including frisbees, water-bombs and toilet fresheners, we welcome you to the village of Fuente Ovejuna where it’s all about to kick off!
Director Daniel Goldman and award-winning Tangram return to Southwark Playhouse for the first time since Richard III (2007) to present the first London revival of Lope’s world classic since the National’s Olivier Award winning production of 21 years ago.
