Dona Rosita, the Spinster

BY FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA
24 March 2015 — 24 April 2015

Also known as The Language of the Flowers.

Will Dona Rosita’s sweetheart return from South America? Who are the three young girls who nightly go to the Allhambra? Why have Senor X, the Professor of Economics and the crippled teacher Don Martin, come to the house, and what has the Rose Mutabilis got to do with the story?

Federico Garcia Lorca, murdered by the fascists in the Spanish Civil War, is one of the great dramatists and poets of the Twentieth Century. Having created a new translation ofThe House of Bernarda Alba, the same team now turn to a less known and very different Lorca play – a comedy, a tragedy and a satire.
