The Billy-Club Puppets (Los Títeres de Cachiporra) is a play for puppet theatre by the twentieth-century SpanishplaywrightFederico García Lorca. It was written between 1922 and 1925.It is about a beautiful heroine named Rosita who falls in love with a poor boy named Cocoliche, but has to marry Don Cristobal, a rich old, lazy lump with a big billy club. Meanwhile, there are bar fights, some mean smugglers, and Figaro and Wearisome discover a deep, dark secret about Don Cristobal. He gave it the subtitle "Tragi-comedy of Don Cristóbal and Miss Rosita: A Guignolesquefarce in six scenes and an announcement."  Don Cristóbal is a kind of Punch character (which itself was based on Pulcinella), who also appears in García Lorca's other, later puppet play, The Puppet Play of Don Cristóbal (written in 1931).
