Dulaang UP’s Fuente Ovejuna is now streaming online.

The production ran from November 8 to December 1, 2019 at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater of UP Diliman as part of the company’s 44th season. Fuente Ovejuna is believed to have been written by Spanish dramatist Lope De Vega between 1612-1614 and is translated to Filipino by Nicolas Pichay for the Dulaang UP production. Based upon a historical incident that took place in the village of “Fuente Ovejuna” in Castile in 1476, the play deals with the uprising of a village against a feudal overlord, the cruel and sex-crazed Commendador Fernan Gomez De Guzman. The aggrieved villagers of Fuente Ovejuna bond together and kill the cruel autocrat in order to end their misery.
