The UVA Department of Drama will premiere Dave Dalton’s Love’s a Bitch February 22 – March 1, 2018 in the Ruth Caplin Theatre.  Dalton’s play, freely adapted from Don Gil de las calzas verdes the 17th century work of Tirso de Molina, updates the play to a contemporary view of a woman who seeks revenge after having been dumped by her lover.  The resulting tragi-comic play follows Doña Juana who is jilted by Don Gil for a wealthier woman. Juana steals his identity and uses it to win the heart of his new love as her revenge.  Complications arise, both comic and tragic, as Juana goes from victim to villain.  Read more . . .
