Original title

Baraja del rey don Pedro

Written by Agustín García Calvo, this play recovers the figure of Peter I, the Cruel, in order to reflect on the relationship of power and the individual.

Published in 1998, this Agustín García Calvo play was premiered in Madrid in January 2000 by the La Abadía Theatre and directed by José Luis Gómez.

Wishing to reflect on the relationship of power and the individual, the author recovers the figure of Peter I, the Cruel. Specifically, it represents the moment at which Peter was besieged by his half brother, Henry of Trastámara, over a dispute about the crown of Castile. Set against this background of war, Peter reflects on the identity of man and about power and money as universal values, which are always placed above mankind itself.

The author employs language of great richness and precision to highlight the quality of the Spanish tongue.
