The Public


The Public (El público), also known as The Audience, is a play by the twentieth-century Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca.[2] It was written between 1929 and 1930. The two complete manuscripts which once existed have not been found, and may be lost. All that is known is an earlier draft, missing an act.[3] It remained unpublished until 1978 and did not receive its first professional theatrical production until 1986.[4] The world premiere of the play was directed by Victoria Espinosa on 15 February 1978 at the University of Puerto Rico.[1]
