La Piedra Oscura
This new play delves deep into the Spanish psyche and explores the consequences of the Spanish Civil War and psychological fears.
This award-winning play by Spanish playwright Alberto Conejero is inspired by the life of Rafael Rodríguez Rapún, a student and secretary of Lorca’s theatre group.
La Piedra Oscura tells the story of two men that have been captured and imprisoned by the Spanish rebels and are destined to spend the last years of their lives together. In a room at a military hospital near Santander, these complete strangers are forced to share the terrible hours of a countdown that may end, at dawn, with the death of one of them as one name reverberates around the room, Federico García Lorca.
