The Shoemaker's Prodigious Wife
by Federico Garcia Lorca
An older shoemaker marries an unruly young woman who berates her neighbors and humiliates her husband. Her husband eventually leaves her to make a living for herself. She fends off Casanovas and Don Juans with laments for her lost husband. But once a one-man circus comes to town and unfolds a story very similar to her own, she discovers something that might cure her woe. Celebrate this famous Spanish playwright by experiencing this uniquely poetic voice with us.
