Mendoza is an adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth in 1910 revolutionary Mexico.
A story of ambition, violence and power; more up to date than ever. The play takes us through the turbulent years at the beginning of the 20th century in this Central American country. General José Mendoza receives a tempting prophecy from an old witch, made even worse by his persuasive wife. This marks the beginning of a bloodbath with no end in sight.
A canteen, six actors and three actresses comprise the ingredients in the staging of a play that draws from the dramaturgy of Juan Rulfo and Elena Garro.
