Eavesdrop on “women and servants” as they plot to outsmart fathers and masters to marry those they love.

Lope de Vega's Women and Servants (Mujeres y Criados, c. 1613-14) was recently rediscovered in an overlooked 17th Century manuscript in Madrid's Biblioteca Nacional, the comedia emerges from its 400-year sleep with a remarkable freshness: it presents a world of suave self-fashioning and accommodation, where creaky notions of honor and vengeance have virtually no place.
