Summary This edition presents The Mountain Girl from La Vera (1613) for the first time in English. The extraordinary protagonist, Gila, calls herself a man, takes pride in doing things men do, and falls in love with a queen. Her betrayal by an army captain who she has humiliated leads to tragedy. Gila has been described as feminist, lesbian, queer, and transgender. It is a vibrant, relevant play and a great piece of theatre
