The beautiful sisters Nise and Finea are both being proclaimed by their wealthy father, Don Octavio, for suitable husbands. However, Nise is too clever for her own good, and younger sibling Finea is too stupid. Everyone is under instruction to hide Finea's stupidity long enough, so that she will be married. Lope de Vega's romantic comedy is translated by David Johnston and directed by Laurence Boswell.
