FUENTE OVEJUNA

Fuente Ovejuna by Lope de Vega is based upon an actual historical incident that took place in 1476 in a small Spanish village. The play tells the story of the villagers’ oppression and rebellion. The audience was immersed in the story of this action packed play. The cast and crew would like to thank their wonderful audience for their continued support!
