Original title

La señorita de Trevélez

Comic play by Carlos Arniches which criticises the cruelty and idleness of the young bourgeoisie.

A comedy in which the author criticises the young bourgeoisie, which is more and more abundant, idle and not bothered about the country's current affairs.

Set in a capital of a Spanish province in the early 19th century, the play tells the story about the adventures at night and pranks by three friends: Tito, Numeriano and Pablito Picabea. Because of a bad taste prank, Florita Trevélez, a mature but not very attractive woman, thinks that Numeriano and Picabea like her, when they do not. The situation gets out of hand so they have to confess the truth in the end.

In 1936, the filmmaker Edgar Neville made a film based on this play.
