About: Don Gil of the Green Breeches/ Don Gil de las Calzas Verdes

As part of our Spanish Golden Age season Don Gil of the Green Breeches is an exuberant comedy which blends mistaken identity, role-reversal, ghosts and green trousers.

Dona Juana has fallen for the oldest trick in the book. The dashing Don Martin, the man she thought she was going to marry, has left her for the wealthy Dona Ines. However Dona Juana is not the sort of woman to take this lying down.

She pulls on a pair of green breeches and sets off to Madrid in hot pursuit of Don Martin, assuming the same name he is using to woo his new lover – a strategy which will either cause a change of heart or complete chaos.

Written by Tirso de Molina, this deliciously anarchic and original comedy has been translated by Sean O'Brien, an award-winning English poet, critic and playwright. Sean's prizes include the Somerset Maugham Award, the Cholmondeley Award, the Forward Poetry Prize and the T. S.Eliot Prize.
