Presented by University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) and Know Theatre of Cincinnati at Know Theatre, Cincinnati OH

Oct 09 - 24 2015

A co-production between Know Theatre of Cincinnati and CCM’s Division of Theatre Arts, Production and Arts Administration

Written by Charise Castro Smith
Brant Russell, director

An absurdist play amped to the max, The Hunchback of Seville delves into the lives of the monarchy and citizens of 15th-century Spain: the infamous Queen Isabella, the spoiled Infanta Juana (the future Queen of Spain), and the Muslim Talib who is desperately attempting to avoid persecution at the hands of the Spanish Inquisition. All of this revolves around Maxima, a mathematical genius and adopted royal family member who is locked away in a tower and pines for Talib’s love. Smith’s play uses this dark, comedic plot both for laughs and as a serious means to examine sanitized history and human rights injustices both in Spain and the new world that Columbus “discovered.”
