While there are hundreds of men waiting before Eréndira’s tent, the grandmother negotiates the price and counts the money. All the while, Ulyses, young and beautiful as an angel, desires her. After the lovers’ attempts at running away fail, they plan a murder. The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Eréndira and Her Heartless Grandmother is considered to be one of the most emotional stories by Gabriel García Márquez. Some of his motives from One Hundred Years of Solitude are woven here with themes such as guilt and redemption, love and death. A laureate of the Nobel Prize for Literature, an exceptional director who also signs the staging of the text, as well as a consecrated company address a magical world where reality and imagination intertwine.
