María de Zayas y Sotomayor was the Candace Bushnell of 17th century Spain – a fierce and frank female voice during the “Golden Age” of Spanish literature. In fact, her masterpiece about women, dating and relationships, Friendship Betrayed is like Sex in the City gone Baroque: Marcia lusts after Liseo, but so does Laura. Belisa’s into Don Juan, but he’s smitten with Fenisa. Liseo’s hot for Fenisa, and Fenisa loves only love. Now WSC Avant Bard, concurrently with the Women’s Voices Theatre Voices, stages a thrilling new version of this strikingly relevant comedy. Director Kari Ginsburg sets Friendship Betrayed in the Roaring Twenties–a time when women had just won the vote and were giving their new-found sexual freedom a spin.
