This play is based on a text by Francisco de Quevedo with the extensive title of The dreams and speeches of true discoverers of abuses, vices and deceptions in all of the professions and states of the world. However, the main character here is not Devil, nor Death, nor any of the fictional characters that inhabit its pages.
The only star in these Dreams is Francisco de Quevedo y Villegas, the man, his life and the agony before his death, his memories and his obsessions, his friends and his enemies, his loves and his deceptions. It is the testament of an artist, but above all, a man taken to the limit at a time when he can no longer dream. The reality of the 17th century was so conclusive that “one could only vegetate or live in living flesh”. And this is how Quevedo lived, brilliantly performed by Juan Echanove.
