Malvivir is the first-person account of the secret life of the picaro Elena de Paz, a free, rebellious, thieving, ingenious, deceitful and runaway woman who defies all the conventions of her time and pays the price for her freedom.
Malvivir is a journey into the dark side of the Spanish Golden Age; a journey through the different social strata, settings and characters of a turbulent and fascinating era.
Malvivir is also the story of the heart-breaking and wild love between Elena and Montúfar; two miserable picaros in a Spain of splendour and famine, dreams and deceit, faith and witchcraft, illusion and death.
Ay Teatro presents a tragicomic vision of the 17th century, a reflection on freedom and survival, and a revival of the female picaresque literature of the Baroque period.
