Show Description:

The Bonds of Interest
Written by Jacinto Benavente

The bonds of love are nothing to The Bonds of Interest Don’t miss Odyssey Theatre’s 34th season of Theatre Under the Stars. It is excited to present the world premiere of a new translation of The Bonds of Interest by Spanish playwright and Nobel Prize laureate, Jacinto Benavente.

The con is on when two penniless con artists arrive in a town of pretenders and concoct a devious scheme to get rich. But the town is in too deep and too tied up in their vested bonds of interest to blow the whistle.

Directed by Artistic Director Laurie Steven, this production will weave the company’s signature masks and Commedia dell’Arte with the play’s delightful wit and savage farce to create a flamboyantly theatrical production that will speak to today’s audiences.

A talented team of designers and a cast of twelve will create a stunning production that promises to be the hit of the summer. Rarely seen in North America, Benavente’s modern Commedia dell’Arte masterpiece is a wickedly clever satire about self-interest, greed, and corruption in the modern consumer-driven world.

This marvellous new translation is being developed by Odyssey Theatre in collaboration with Catherine Boyle of Out of the Wings. Based in London UK, and associated with King’s College London University, they are dedicated to bringing the trove of untranslated Spanish theatre to English-speaking audiences.

Lysistrata and the Temple of Gaia
Written and directed by David S. Craig

A provocative, sexual, and funny new play that blends farce, Greek chorus work, and a giant masked goddess to expose our apathy to environmental catastrophe.
