One of a trio of plays being staged in repertory at the Arcola in Dalston as part of their Spanish Golden Age, Don Gil of the Green Breeches is a cross-dressing comedy about mistaken identity, role-reversal, ghosts and green trousers. Donna Juana, "easily the best part in all three of the plays" (The Stage), is played by a "sparkling" Hedydd Dylan. When she discovers the man she thought she was going to marry has left her for the wealthy Dona Ines, Dona Juana dons a pair of green breeches and sets off to Madrid in hot pursuit. Anarchy and hilarity ensue.
