The Guiniguada Theater has scheduled for this Wednesday the 13th at 20.30 the play The sleeping voice, based on the Spanish postwar period. This text is born from the Extremadura writer Sweet Chacón. A group of women, imprisoned in the Madrid prison of Ventas, holds the banner of dignity and courage as the only possible weapon to face humiliation, torture and death.
Daniel Tapia, director of the Guiniguada Theater, highlighted on Monday in the presentation, that it was a "chance" to program it for its great quality. The sister of the author, Inma Chacón, explained that it is "a story of times of silence, where he recounts the suffering of those women who lost a war and the agony they lived without knowing what would be its end." The work is documented in real stories, although the author softened some of them and introduced new nuances. It was his last novel, the author died in 2003, awarded by the Guild of Booksellers of Madrid as Book of the Year 2003.
