Fuente Ovejuna

The people rise up against injustice and abuses of power

17 february 2017

Fuente Ovejuna (1619) is a Baroque theatre play by Lope de Vega, in which the people rise up against injustice and abuses of power. The rebellion ended up in murder, but the coroner could only get a single answer from the mouths of the villagers: «Fuente Ovejuna did it». Faced with this admirable behaviour, he decided against continuing with the investigation, taking the people’s revenge to be fair.

Emotion, poetry and truth on the stage are what the El Vacie women’s group offers. Seven years after their memorable performance of The House of Bernarda Alba, which was programmed by the Arriaga at the Sala BBK, the group has grown in artistic quality and stage presence and the ability to move.

This TNT production, directed by Pepa Gamboa, once more shows that another type of theatre is possible, eliminating all of the prejudices thanks to some women who did not know anything about theatre before arriving at the TNT Centre and had never considered taking part in a theatre performance.


With Fuenteovejuna,  their voices rise again.
