Written a year before his death, this collection of short plays by Miguel de Cervantes is a fine example of his genius. Oftentimes overlooked, these eight vignettes are funny and touching at the same time. Designed to be performed in between larger acts, they give a glimpse into a world far less glamorous than courtly life. This diverse collection covers such stories as a clever student fooling a gullible husband with tales of magic, and that of two con artists fooling a town with an invisible puppet show.
