David Mondedeu - Blue is the First Light

David Mondedeu's fifth book.

At the rise of the curtain, the audience is faced with an altarpiece from the city of Ayacucho, Peru. These retablos, meaning behind the table or altar, used in Catholic churches in Spain and in Latin America to evangelize the indigenous. In recent times, these retablos show the struggle of the people of the Andean region between the violent forces of the State and the Sendero Luminoso.

This is a play in Four Acts. The play takes place in Ayacucho, Peru.

The sky is a tender blue, almost turquoise, which invests the play with a kind of lyricism and attenuates the atmosphere of decay. (1) Or rather that of the first light of the first day.

-(1) adapted from A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
