The translation and adaptation of this rediscovered work will receive its world premiere on the Waller stage. A romantic comedy by 17th-century playwright Pedro Calderón de la Barca is given new life by award-winning playwright Caridad Svich.

A wild child lives on an enchanted island. One day, he comes upon a young woman and experiences the tumult of love in his heart for the first time and sets out in its pursuit. The only problem is that this wild child happens to be Achilles. What’s a boy to do to be near his love but the seemingly impossible?
