Juan Mayorga updates his version of Fuente Ovejuna for La Joven.


Fuente Ovejuna manages to represent an entire era in a few hours, some places, a handful of human beings: humiliated and rebellious people, old gentlemen who do not want to lose the future, new gentlemen who are learning to be. All of them live, more or less consciously, the vertigo of witnessing the death of one order and the birth of another. “The world is ending”, says the Commander. Yours is over, of course. But, what world is being born in the assault on the Casa de la Encomienda?
