This stage play is the adaptation of some stories of Juan Rulfo’s “Llano en Llamas”. Played by the Company “GestoNoEsTeatro”.

Post-revolutionary scenes overcome the rural limitations of these tales about the Mexican Revolution. The popular language is artistically developed and the life of the peasant appears representative of an archetype of neglect, at the margins of folklore.

Rulfo’s stories are about what has happened and what cannot be changed (in "The Man" and "Tell Them Not to Kill Me!"). Rulfo explores the mechanisms of power and the faces of violence, often within the framework of family relationships being torn apart ("No Dogs Bark," "The Inheritance of Matilde Arcángel"). The majority of Rulfo’s characters are alone and feel that they are culprits ("Macario," "The Hill of the Comrades"). As a result, they are traveling or wandering with no true purpose ("Talpa," "They Gave Us the Land"), and they speak ceaselessly in the face of dumb or nonexistent interlocutors ("Luvina," "Remember"). The skillful handling of temporal structure and narrative voices, together with the dexterous balance between reality and fantasy, remote from magical realism, means that the great originality of these stories and their author would be enough, with only one other novel (Pedro Páramo), for him to be considered one of the greatest writers of his time.
