The Shoemaker's Prodigious Wife (La zapatera prodigiosa), also known as The Shoemaker's Wonderful Wife and The Shoemaker's Prosperous Wife, is a play by the twentieth-century Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca. It was written between 1926 and 1930, and first performed in 1930.
The play tells the story of a volatile relationship between a married couple, the husband of whom is much older than his eighteen-year-old wife. The story follows the wife's struggle against her husband, neighbours, suitors, and a "boy".
The Shoemaker's Prodigious Wife features a poem, recited by the Shoemaker when disguised as a puppet-master. The poem provides a condensed version of the story of The Shoemaker.
