"Unhappily Married in Valencia," by Guillén de Castro, translated by Barbara Fuchs and the UCLA Working Group
Amazingly modern, this biting comedy shows what happens after the traditional happy ending. Two married couples air their disillusions with marriage, while the cross-dressed mistress of one of the husbands merrily manipulates one and all. With everyone attracted to the wrong person, innuendo, accusations, and revenge steal the show.
This volume is part of the Diversifying the Classics project at UCLA, which seeks to foster awareness and appreciation of the Hispanic Golden Age and give theater professionals the materials and tools to explore its rich tradition.
