Synopsis of the theatre performances: “The Jealous Old Man” reflects Cervantes’ interest in
obsessive-compulsive psychological states that border on madness – most famously represented in Don Quixote. Here a paranoid old man marries a much younger woman, only to be cuckolded by her in his own home. The play opens with the lady of the house, Lorenza, complaining to her niece Cristina and an old bawd, Ortigosa, that she has been locked up and patrolled by her jealous old ‘gaoler’, her husband. 
Ortigosa offers to sneak a young man into the house for Lorenza to enjoy. Cristina also wants a man for herself, and Ortigosa leaves, promising to bring them both. Meanwhile Cañizares, the Jealous Old Man, is outside conversing with his friend,; he reveals how he is jealous even of the wind that blows on Lorenza, though she has never given him cause. Cañizares won’t even allow his friend to enter the house to say hello to Lorenza, he is so jealous of all other men. Ortigosa knocks on the door, pretending to be asking the master of the house for money to bail her son out of jail, in exchange for a large tapestry which she has brought along to sell. Pictured on the tapestry is a handsome young man in a cape; as she and Lorenza hold up the cloth to inspect it, a young man sneaks into the house behind the tapestry. Once the young man is safe in Lorenza’s chamber, Ortigosa takes her leave and Lorenza goes into her room. 
Cristina and Cañizares hear Lorenza ‘enjoying’ her young man from the sounds emanating from the next room. Cañizares attempts to go through the door, and Lorenza throws a bowl of water in his face, allowing the young man to escape. Lorenza yells at her husband for not trusting her and for making a fuss, and an Officer of the Law hears the shouting. He comes in to make sure all is well, accompanied by neighbours, Ortigosa and a musician. After Cañizares is reconciled to his wife and Ortigosa, the musician calls for a song, and all ends in apparent neighbourly harmony.

Biographies of the artists and teachers:

Harsh Raman Singh Paul. I began my journey as a student of design. It took me many odd jobs in
diverse fields to realize what I really wanted to do. I wanted to create art and share it with others. And so I chose the streets as my canvas, where I can intercept and inspire many lives. You could say I’m a social worker of sorts. I take people away from their boring stressful lives, even if for a few moments, all in an attempt to trigger their imagination. Moreover there is a certain charm of putting art on the streets which can be seen by everyone but owned by no one. Kind of reminds you of the beautiful things in life that money can't buy.
