Miguel Delibes’ great novel is coming to the theatre for the first time thanks to José Sámano, with a stunning performance by José Sacristán, who steps into the role of the painter who was plunged into a creative crisis after his wife, remembered through sorrow and love, died unexpectedly of an illness.

This play tells the tale of a love story on an unbridled path toward death, which takes us back to the unequivocal Spain, speaking to us of happiness and its loss, reaching into the intimacy of each and every human being, and their emotions, on the straight and simple path of truth.
