Royal Shakespeare Company : Spanish Golden Age Season


One of the few plays in the 17th century to be written by a woman, House of Desires tells the hilarious story of the exploits of Dona Ana, Dona Leonor, and Don Carlos as they entangle themselves in one of the most unusual love triangles in classical literature. Newly translated by Catherine Boyle from the original Spanish, this farce reminds us that true hearts can untie even the most complicated of knots. By Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz

Joseph Millson Role

Don Carlos

I particularly like Joseph Millson's Don Carlos; his aristocratic certainty, second only to his aristocratic looks and bearing, is constantly undermined by his hilarious mental contortions convincing himself that his lover is really totally pure and faithful (which of course she is but he doesn't know it.)
