The Dog in the Manger is Nov. 5 – 8

LEWISTON, Idaho - LCSC Mainstage Theatre presents The Dog in the Manger, a play by Lope de Vega, adapted by David Johnston, and directed by Jef J. Peterson.  Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m., November 5 – 8 at the LCSC Center for Arts & History.

A wry comedy about love, infidelity and class in the Spanish Golden Age, Peter Marks of the Washington Post says of the script: “The comedy and characters manage to seem of their own time and ours. No small feat for an obscure tale of so long ago and far away. Diana, the Countess of Belflor, has rejected all of her aristocratic suitors, but after discovering one of her ladies-in-waiting is in love with her secretary, Teodoro, Diana realizes she too is in love with him. In order to pursue this forbidden love, Diana must deceive her friends, fool her suitors, and formulate ever more elaborate machinations. Lope de Vega’s play is a perfect mixture of tragedy and comedy, as it delves into the devilish whims of the human heart.”

Admission is $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for non-LCSC students, and free for LCSC students with their student ID.  Tickets will be sold at the door, but seating is limited. This production contains mild adult language.
