About the Show
Repertorio Espanol presents Federico García Lorca’s comedy in which gossip and ageism nip at the marriage of a mismatched couple; performed in Spanish with English subtitles.
'The Shoemaker's Prodigious Wife' tells of a young beauty married to an old man. The shoemaker and his wife are shunned in their society because they are different, and so the shoemaker leaves the wife. The mayor and several young men all swoop in as soon as the shoemaker leaves, trying to woo her. They all fail miserably as the wife stays loyal to the shoemaker. The shoemaker becomes tired of a life on the road, and comes back disguised as a puppeteer. Performed in Spanish with English subtitles.
