The case of La Manada portrayed in this unflinching and indispensible stage production

17 to 20 october 2019

Maria Hervás, who has just won the Max Prize for Best Actress for “Iphigenia en Vallecas” (a play that also ran at the Arriaga), returns to our stage leading the cast of a play about a subject that is, unfortunately, all too current. “Jauría” is a drama built around the statements given by the accused and the complainant, and parts of the transcripts from the trial of ‘La Manada’ (the herd), the term used sadly to refer to the five men who gang raped a young woman in San Fermin, in 2016.

3 a.m. 7 July 2016. Fiestas de San Fermín. There are five of them. They call themselves La Manada. The youngest and newest member must go through his rite of initiation. After crossing paths with a girl in the centre of Pamplona, the five offer to walk her to her car. But on the way, one of them slips into the doorway of a building and calls the others to join him. They grab the girl and force her into the doorway.
