BWW Review: THE LOVE OF DON PERLIMPLIN AND BELISA IN THE GARDEN at Hasimta Theatre - A Fresh Take on Lorca
by Yuval Gerstner - Mar 1, 2017

This classic play by Federico Garcia Lorca is probably one of his less famous works, but this fresh new version by Scapino Theatre Company surely shows us that it's definitely an unheralded masterpiece. It is the story of an elderly bachelor, Don Perlimplin (played by Dror Teplitzky), who is persuaded by his servant that he should marry the youthful and beautiful Belisa (played by Orit Peres). Despite their marriage, Belisa cannot control her craving and lust for younger men. Even on their wedding night Don Perlimplin is cuckolded by five different men in his own bedchamber, which surprisingly doesn't lead him to a jealous behavior. On the contrary, he declares that he has discovered the true meaning of love and he's willing to play along. Graphic love letters to Belisa begin to arrive at the house from a mysterious caped man, a man whom Don Perlimplin swears he will challenge. (more...)
