Short Play


A down-and-out theatrical producer in 16th-century Spain plays on the vanity of the Castilians by announcing The Marvelous Playbill, an entertainment so unusual that only a pure-blooded Castilian can see it. The announcement brings people pouring in. Actually, there is no show. Chanfalla tells them what they are seeing. At first, they're all struck dumb by the realization that they aren't pure-blooded since they see nothing. Soon human vanity is at work and they're all telling outrageous lies. Bare stage w/props. Approximate running time: 30 minutes.
