Don Gil of the Green Breeches (Don Gil de la Calchas Verdes - 1615) archiveDon Gil of the Green Breeches is an exuberant comedy which blends mistaken identity, role-reversal, ghosts and green trousers. Dona Juana has fallen for the oldest trick in the book. The dashing Don Martin, the man she thought she was going to marry, has left her for the wealthy Dona ines. But Dona Juana is not the sort of woman to take this lying down... She pulls on a pair of green breeches and sets off to Madrid in hot pursuit of Don Martin, assuming the same name he is using to woo his new lover - a strategy which will either cause a change of heart or complete chaos...
