The Romantic Young Lady
A play by Gregorio Martinez Sierra
This comedy centres around the young Rosario, who has fallen in love with the unknown author of a book she is reading. Her life begins to be exciting when a straw hat is blown through the window, one evening, followed by its retrieving owner – the author of her dreams. The play is full of humour and well-drawn characters.
Gregorio Martinez-Sierra was born in Madrid in 1881 and devoted his career to writing for the theatre.
