You might think it’s virtually impossible to discover new work by a playwright who’s been dead for nearly 400 years, but that’s just what Alejandro Garcia-Reidy of Syracuse University did in 2014. He talks about his work with Lope de Vega’s Mujeres y Criados (Women and Servants), a play that sheds new light on the important and prolific playwright from Spain’s “Golden Age.”
