by Federico Garcia Lorca, translated by Pilar Orti.
The ultimate Lorca.
Described as an "impossible comedy", When Five Years Pass is one of Federico García Lorca's most surreal works. Written during his stay in New York, the play is set in a modern city and is populated by a wide range of characters including a talking mannequin and a dead boy and cat.
After waiting for five years to marry his fiancée, the Young Man discovers that she has moved on and he no longer fits the memory she had of him. But his longing for a child takes him to another woman who had longed for him five years ago - but will she be ready to love him before five years pass?
