Synopsis

In the middle of the II Spanish Republic, three comedians travel the dusty roads of our geography with their "Cart of Thespis", ready to delight young and old by changing their boredom for fun and their sorrows for joys. They are comedians fulfilling the urgent pedagogical mission of taking culture to all those corners that have been forgotten by History. They arrive in search of a new audience −that one on the road at the end of any day− to show us the enormous wealth of our classical theatre: the great treasures hidden in our books! And so, between jokes and songs, the best of the repertoire of the great Lope de Rueda is unravelled and paraded "step by step", at a Rueda’s pace, through all that mosaic of figures and characters that the great comedian of Cordoba knew how to interpret, as Cervantes said, "with the greater excellence and property”.
