‘Fuente Ovejuna’ Performances April 6-9

Based on actual historic events, GTA’s multi-cultural production of Fuente Ovejuna examines the way the residents of a small rural town in southern Spain rebel against a military overlord abusing his power. The production runs April 6-9, at 7:30 p.m., at Brenau University’s Theatre on the Square, 301 Main St. SW.  The show is rated PG13; admission is free.

Drawing from the classic story of an underdog retaliating against hegemony, Lope de Vega’s Fuente Ovejuna parallels a number of movements around the world today pushing back against the perceived abuse of power.
