Know Theatre of Cincinnati

The Hunchback of Seville


F*&# Colonialism

The year is 1504, and on an unnaturally cold day in Spain, the brilliant, hunchbacked, adopted sister of Queen Isabella is given a chance to mayber change the world. All she has to do is hide her Moorish lover, deal with a hellion of an heir, and side step the Inquisition.

Spoiler alert: it doesn’t go well.

The Hunchback of Seville is an irreverent comedy that skewers the horrors of colonialism with a rapier wit and a heavy dose of the ridiculous, en route to a Tarantino-esque climax.

Know Theatre and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music team up for this co-production of a twisted history you never learned in school.

October 9-24, 2015.
Wed-Saturday at 8pm.
Sunday at 3pm.
