Love of Perlimplin with Belisa in the Garden

In English and in Spanish on the same performance, with two casts and two different stagings. Written between 1922 and 1926 and premiered in 1933, Amor de Don Perlimplín con Belisa en su Jardín is a masterpiece of farce that ends in tragedy, mixing lyrical and gortesque moments onstage. In the play, Don Perlimplín is an elderly man who, proud of having remained a bachelor all his life, is convinced by his servant Marcolfa to marry his neighbour Belisa, a tender teenager offered unashamedly and almost by force by her mother. But tragedy explodes on the wedding night when, despite Perliplín's confession of his love for Belisa, she falls for another man with whom she is having a passionate romance. Aware of the deception, Perlimplín will have to decide how to respond to this treachery.
Author Federico Garcia Lorca
