Home Grown: Nuevo Mundo: UVA’s Love’s a Bitch with David Dalton

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, our second scheduled guest sadly, surprisingly stands us up, leaving us room to do a deep dive into the UVA Drama Department’s upcoming production, Love’s a Bitch – freely adapted from Don Gil de las Calzas Verdes by Tirso de Molina. David Dalton Assistant Professor of Acting and Directing from UVA’s Department of Drama visits the show for the first time. He has spent ten years, on and off, adapting Molina’s play about gender switching and romantic revenge, and now he’s directed it. Prof. Dalton also SHOCKS Clinton and Leslie with a whole world of Golden Age Spanish Theater (mid-1600s) that they never knew about. !Madre de Dios! We promise that we’re not turning into a Theater show, but we just had to get into it! We love ALL local art here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
