This enchanting farce, written by Federico Garcia Lorca early in his career, tells a simple yet classic tale: Rosita is desperately in love with the charming and poetic Cocoliche. But her poverty-stricken mother has promised her in marriage to the filthy rich and disgusting tyrant Don Cristóbal! It’s when the romantic adventurer Currito returns home to claim Rosita for his bride, however, that trouble really begins to brew! Born out of his love for the traditional traveling puppet theatre of Spain, Lorca fills this lighthearted play with fanciful characters and magical moments that will delight adults and children alike!
