Unhappily Married in Valencia
full length – no intermission – one set
(loosely based on Guillen de Castro’s comic play Los mal casados de Valencia written in 1618)
Valencia, California, present day
Unhappily Married in Valencia was inspired by Guillén de Castro’s 1618 “Los mal casados de Valencia,” about couples who cannot be reconciled.
This modern adaptation is an an edgy farce about two mismatched married couples living in Valencia, California, each of them searching for something different than what they have, leading to declarations of love for their neighbors’ spouses, going off meds, and one husband’s mistress( or mister) manipulating everyone.
