The Siglo de Oro Foundation company returns to one of its favorite authors, Lope de Vega, and to one of the works this author they know best: The dog in the manger. It is already the third time that this title has been taken to the tables; and, once again, faithful to their interest in building bridges between our Baroque theater and the Elizabethan theater, they have once again entrusted the assembly to a British director. This time, it is none other than Dominic Dromgoole, who headed London’s Shakespeare’s Globe for a decade. Of course, that background of the director is appreciated from the first minutes in the style of a function clearly conceived with some characteristics of the theater that takes place there: the scenographic simplicity, the carefree tone and the search for an active and immediate response from the audience. to the point, almost, of making him a participant in the action.
