At home they seek to assert the dominance of Spain by marrying their daughters to various princes of Europe. One such daughter is Juana, a young woman full of religion and passion. Why, however, is she mad? Though set during the Golden Age of Spain, The Lunatic Queen is both a contemporary satire and classical revenge tragedy, as it tells the story of Juana's two servants who seek vengeance on a system which has victimised them"--About the play
