Four centuries ago, a Spanish monk under the pseudonym Tirso de Molina wrote about four hundred plays, 88 have survived to this day. One of them – “Jealous of herself” interested the NOVY THEATER.
The cape and sword costumed comedy is practically an artifact on the modern stage. The play is based on a classical substitution: the gallant caballero Don Melchor, who came from the provinces to Madrid to his bride in absentia, falls in love with a stranger in the church, seeing only her lovely hand, not knowing that it belongs to his bride Magdalena (her face is covered by a mantilla). A chance meeting of young people after Mass makes an impression on Magdalena, she falls in love with Melchor, not suspecting that he is her fiancé. The audience will witness many funny ups and downs, which as a result will lead to a happy ending.
