Event Details

The Things We Do For Love

An evening of Spanish theatre

Directed by Laurie Steven 

Theatre Under the Stars in Strathcona Park: Tuesday through to Sunday at 8pm

Join us for our 30th anniversary! This year Odyssey will be performing a trio of Spanish one-act plays, which explore the extremes we go to for love, featuring:

Saving Melisendra! based on a chapter of Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote. Master Pedro’s chivalric puppet play takes a surprising turn when an unexpected audience member arrives!

The Love of Don Perlimpin and Belisa in the Garden by Federico García Lorca. What happens when a middle-aged man marries and then falls in love with a seething, sensual young gypsy girl? Comedy and tragedy rolled into one as Perlimplin goes to great lengths to win her heart!

Whether You Like it Or Not by Tirso de Molina with translation by Dr. José Ruano de la Haza. An outrageous comedy in which the whimsical heroine concocts outrageous schemes to trap the man who has stolen her heart – whether he likes it or not!


Dates: July 25 to August 23, 2015

Time: Doors open at 7:30 pm, show starts at 8 pm

Location: Strathcona Park, Ottawa

Tickets: General Admission: Adults: $25 ($27 at door); Students/Seniors: $20; Children: $10; Picnic & Show Package (partnership with Cordon Bleu Ottawa): $53
