Between Sillys It Walks the Game

In Entre bobos anda el juego (Between Sillys It Walks the Game) of Francisco de Rojas Zorrilla, Isabel is on the way to Toledo, where her future husband awaits her, the extravagant Don Lucas. At night, they find Don Luis, the ridiculous sister of Don Lucas, and Don Antonio, Isabel’s father. Dispelling the misunderstandings, Lucas accepts Isabel’s marriage to Don Pedro and Alfonsa with Don Luis.
Between Sillys It Walks the Game is the supreme model of the «comedy of figurine»: the grotesque provincial caricature that aspires to a social promotion through a marriage that he plans to reach for his wealth.
