The Department of Theatre presents The Love of Don Perlimplin and Belisa in the Garden.
A delicious little tragic farce by Spain’s greatest modern playwright, Don Perlimplín rings sly and shocking changes on that comic staple—the rich old man with the sexy young wife. A small masterpiece from Lorca’s surrealist period, when he was collaborating with his friends Buñuel and Dalí, this fantastical parody of the classical Spanish “honor” tragedy plays lighthearted games with color, shape, language, the human form, and “reality” in general. With songs and music.
