Play script. A play of Oriental mystery, dramatized from "The Legend of the Moor's Legacy" by Washington Irving.
Peregil the water carrier befriends a dying Moor, who bequeaths him a sandalwood box for his kindness. The whole transaction is spied upon by Pedrugo the barber, a jealous neighbor, who carries his interpretation of the tale to the Alcade's palace. The Alcade, inflamed by the hope of treasure, orders Peregil to give up the sandalwood box, which is found to contain nothing but an old candle and a paper with mysterious markings, which tell of treasure buried below the old palace of the Alhambra. The Alcade insists on exploring the old vault for himself, though warned by the Moor's paper that the treasure is available only to him who lives by the Rule of t Brotherhood. There follows a scene full of danger and suspense, where the Alcade and his followers, each motivated by greed, plunge into the depths of the Alhambra, only to be turned to stone by their trickery. Cast of 2 women, 7 men, 3 children. Three sets. Spanish costumes.
