Leonor has been wronged by her lover. So, what’s a girl to do? Hunt the rat down and take a sword to his throat, of course! In this devilishly fun play by one of Spain’s most successful ladies of letters, Leonor and her friend Ribete battle with their whole selves– hearts, minds, and bodies– as they fool and foil not only Don Juan but an entire entourage of wily wits, rueful rogues, and fetching flirts. Beware: a woman’s wrongs are no match for her courage. . . and love often lurks in the least likely of places.
Produced in collaboration with UCLA’s Diversifying the Classics Project.
The 8pm performance on Friday 12/1 will offer Open Captioning. Open Captioning is a live, word-for-word transcription of what the performers are saying as well as sound cues like “phone rings”, “knock at the door”, or “classical music”. Open Captions are visible to all audience members and no one can enable or disable the captions based on their preferences. Open Captioning is preferred by many, including individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, and people whose second language is English. This service is provided by Ai-Media and sponsored by the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, the Presidential Discretionary Fund, IT/Media Services in collaboration with the Arts Administration Program and Theater Department.
