The Three-Cornered Hat (2002 & 2005)

El Sombrero De Tres Picos
The Three-Cornered Hat (2002 & 2005)


For this production of El Sombrero de Tres Picos, TSF gathered a comic crew of Spanish-speaking actors to create a Spanish fiesta, full of colourful situations and larger than life characters suitable for those aged 15 years and upwards. 

A sleepy Andalusian village, a comic duo of donkeys dozing in the heat ... the highly pompous local magistrate, El Corregidor, is on the prowl, the beautiful Miller's wife, Frasquita - his prey.... Can Lucas, her husband, trust her to be faithful? Or will Frasquita succumb to the Corregidor's lustful advances?

And where is HE going in the dead of night...?

All is not quite what it seems, as wives and clothing are swapped with abandon in this cautionary and satirical tale of love, lust and rural infidelity.
