ABOUT THE PLAY

Fuente Ovejuna is believed to have been written between 1612-1614 by Lope De Vega the “The Monster of Nature” as he was called in his own day, having written 1,500 plays although only 470 are extant. Lope De Vega is the acknowledged founder of Comedia and Spanish Professional Theatre.

Based upon a historical incident that took place in the village of Fuente Ovejuna in Castile in 1476, the play deals with the uprising of a village against the feudal Overlord, the cruel and sex-crazed Commendador Fernan Gomez De Guzman. Aggrieved, the villagers of Fuente Ovejuna to end their misery, bonded together and killed their cruel feudal lord Commendador Fernan Gomez De Guzman.

When a magistrate sent by King Fernando arrived at the village to investigate the murder, the villagers even underthe pain of torture, responded by saying “Fuente Ovejuna did it”.

After no single guilty party was found by the magistrate, King Fernando pardoned the villagers for killing the cruel Commendador Fernan Gomez De Guzman. Actors from stage, film and television will be featured in the production sharing the stage with talented student-actors: Leo Rialp, Carlo Tarobal, Ross Pesigan, Harriete Damole, Chloe Rialp, Adriana Agcaoili, Francis Mata, Christian Barinaga, Alvin Trinidad, George De Jesus, Greg De Leon, Ricci Chan, Jacques Borlaza and others will star in the play. Fuente Ovejuna is directed by Dulaang UP's Founding Artistic Director, Tony Mabesa, and the Filipino translation is by Nicolas Pichay.
