Inspired by the myth of Oedipus, the life of the fourth-century European saint St Martín, and a legal file created by the author that narrates the trial of Martín Santos, this play has Parricide as its central theme. Through a series of meetings at a basketball court between Martin and a playwright who wants to write his story, Thebes Land sets to reconstruct the crime and the encounters between the two characters. The initial question that opens the play: how is it possible to kill someone through the performance? It is gradually replaced by "how is it possible to represent someone?". Finally, Thebes Land moves away from the ethical dimension of Parricide to concentrate on the aesthetic possibilities of its representation, offering a sound thesis about the theatrical event.
