Heart with sword through it.

The Courage to Right a Woman's Wrongs

We are proud to highlight one of the Spanish Golden Age’s most accomplished female playwrights in this recently translated play. Leonor, intent on bringing her unfaithful lover to justice, crosses geographical boundaries and defies social expectations of gender in a crusade to restore her lost honor. Duels, bandits, and mistaken identities are delightfully combined in this 17th century comedy.

¡Feliz cumpleaños! It’s seven-year-old Carmela’s birthday and she is scootering past workers in fields, excited that she’s finally old enough to tag along with her older brother while he runs errands. When she spots a lone dandelion, Carmela must decide what her deepest wish is—and she must do it before her birthday is over. Touching and funny, this delightful play is recommended for children 4-10 years old.
