set in Spain in the reign of King Ferdinand. I'm not sure which one. I'd make a guess it could be the fifteenth-century one they called the Catholic but a better historian than me might notice references to prove me wrong. It is mainly a two-hander between a soldier on the run and a gypsy girl. He seems to be a deserter, though there is more to it than that, and she, we eventually discover, has been disowned by her family. In a way they are both outsiders. He plays the trumpet and, since she dances, she sees he could be the solution to some of her problems: as a musician he can attract attention and play while she performs. as well as what they collect then, they can attract customers for story-telling, fortune-casting and selling whatever they have to trade. He takes no time at all to fall in love with her. the script and the performances suggest he really does but the author's intention may be to suggest he is just as much an opportunist. He has a better idea of what his future might be than her and he could be just after a shag - as he warns her every other serving soldier will be. We certainly get a lot of rumpy-pumpy, though it happens fully clothed and a series of black-outs hide orgasmic moments.
