Presented by Lee Weaver Special OPS, “The Secret – The Spanish Inquisition in Old St. Augustine” is the story of Jose Miguel Martinez, a Spanish Investigative Attorney and Finder in the employ of the Spanish Monarchy and The Roman Catholic Church. His area of expertise: Finding Jews, Moslems and “bad” Catholics. Found, they are arrested and taken away.
Journeying from Spain to the New World with Pedro Menenedez in 1565 and helping to settle St. Augustine, after living comfortably for 20 years, Jose’s world is torn apart when he discovers a Jew – a Marrano – living in close proximity to him and his family. Jose vows to erase this alien, this liar, this pig from his life. He vows to uphold the purity of early St. Augustine.
“The Secret” is a Special One Person Show (Special OPS) that brings the excitement of ocean crossing, The Spanish Inquisition, pirates, alligators, faith, prejudice, intolerance, love, hate and survival of an early American family. It was chosen to appear in the International Fringe Festival in NYC in 2014 and is soon to be a movie.
