"Mariana Pineda is a woman who is living dangerously. A beautiful young widow with two small children, she has given her heart to Don Pedro, one of the conspirators in the anti-monarchist cause, and spends her days secretly stitching a liberal flag that will be raised when the revolution starts in Granada.

Written in Protected content the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera that preceded the Franco regime, Federico Garcia Lorca's homage to the popular heroine who was garrotted almost a century earlier was a clear dramatic gauntlet thrown down against the rising tide of fascism and oppression. Eleven years later Lorca, too, would die a lonely death at the hands of fascist paramilitaries.

Mariana is an interestingly ambiguous figure. She is swept up in the liberal cause only because of her love for Don Pedro. Her passion is born more of romance than revolutionary zeal. Yet when Don Pedro and his fellow conspirators choose to save their own necks and sacrifice hers, she steadfastly refuses to name names. Abandoned, she stares death straight in the eye, a transcendent figure who understands that love and liberty go together and that if you are not free you cannot freely give your heart. In dying for love she takes a revolutionary stand.

This was Lorca's second play."
