Factoría Teatro (Madrid)
In 2015 when we released ‘Novelas Ejemplares’ (‘La española inglesa’ and ‘Las dos doncellas’) we decided Cervantes and his ‘Novelas Ejemplares’ would become a vital artistic project of Factoría de Teatro. So in 2017 we presented ‘Constanza con la ilustre fregona’ and ‘La Gitanilla’ and, in 2019, ‘El coloquio de los perros’, which includes ‘El casamiento engañoso’. We have already added six of the twelve in this eagerness to spread and bring the heritage of our Spanish literature to all audiences, as an act of delight and cultural responsibility at the same time.
In our version, ‘Peralta and Campuzano’ are a two people company, an actor and an actress, who meet in the dressing room to represent ‘El coloquio de los perros’. While they are dressing up Campuzano explains Peralta the details of his deceptive marriage (‘El casamiento engañoso’). The conflictive relationship between the actors fills the stage with comedy and talent.
