The Leal Theatre celebrates World Theatre Day with "La venganza de don Mendo"

On 27 March at 11:00, the Leal Theatre commemorates World Theatre Day with the performance of an extract from "La venganza de don Mendo" ("Don Mendo's Revenche"), by Pedro Muñoz Seca. The piece was chosen for the celebration because this year marks the 100th anniversary of its premiere at the Teatro de la Comedia. It will be performed by Timaginas Teatro.

"La venganza de don Mendo" premiered on 20 December 1918. Since then it has become one of the most widely-performed pieces of Spanish classical theatre, along with "Don Juan Tenorio", "La vida es sueño" and "Fuenteovejuna". Timaginas Teatro will present nearly all the metre and verse of the play's Spanish poetry, which belongs to a minor genre of comic theatre known as "astracanada" that simply aims to get laughs at all costs. The company has been successfully performing this play for both school children and general audiences since 2011.
