The Blade of Jealousy
About The Blade of Jealousy
Dashing Melchor moves to Los Angeles to court his online dating connection but unexpectedly falls in love with a mysterious veiled lady (Magdalena) in a cathedral, and she with him. Unaware that the lady and his date are one and the same person, his reactions ignite Magdalena's jealousy — of herself! A farcical amalgam of disguise and deception ensues. "The Blade of Jealousy," Henry Ong's modern take on a 17th century Spanish play is surprisingly relevant today, in light of society's obsession with outward beauty and how it relates to self-worth.
