Once again, theatre hosts Macarena Gómez has co-star. This time is in Las dos bandoleras, a play written by Lope de Vega. Performed from 8th May to 8th June in the Teatro Pavón (Madrid), is part of the Compañía Nacional de Teatro Clásico and it is directed by Carme Portaceli.
Las dos bandoleras, two medieval revolutionaries
During the Spanish reconquest, Teresa (Macarena Gómez) and Inés (Carmen Ruiz) are two sisters who decide to chose their future while their father is thinking to whom and when they get married. They fall in love of two soldiers (portrayed by David Luque and Álex Larumbe), who make the most of their love while they wait the return to war.
When Teresa and Inés start demanding them an engagement, they runaway. To face the situation, the sisters (inspired by the miythical Serrana de la Vera) turn to be bandits to revenge men and kill any of them that goes through their zone.
But, unlike other people who practised brigandage, las dos bandoleras are not aggressive nor proceed from a environment full of misery. They just use vendetta as the only way to recover the honour that the soldiers stained.
