PERIBAÑEZ
Outdoors in Mellon Park
August 5 - 28, 2016
Tickets and more info: www.quantumtheatre.com/peribanez
412.362.1713

Peribañez and Casilda—young farmers in a strongly connected rural community—have just been happily married. However, the commander’s obsessive love for Casilda pushes the young couple to make painful sacrifices as they strive to preserve their marriage on the brink of war. A cast of 10 performs in the urban oasis of the rose garden in the heart of Mellon Park. This sublime summer offering features live folk music and the spectacle of the Spanish Golden Age... cock-fights and all.

Spanish playwright Lope de Vega, a contemporary of Shakespeare, wrote hundreds of plays and invented the
comedia, a genre of playwriting which mixes comic and heroic elements. In this play, Lope de Vega argues passionately for the inalienable rights of the individual, exploring class and
gender roles—a strikingly modern position for a writer to take in 1613.

PICNIC IN THE PARK!
Quantum has teamed up with Aspinwall's feast on brilliant to provide gourmet picnic options before the play. Pre-order your $15 boxed dinner with your tickets, and we’ll have it ready for you to pick up at 6:30 pm in the park. Check our website for menu options: http://www.quantumtheatre.com/peribanez/
