The “definitive” version of the text, from the Tragicomedy, was published by Juan Guerrero Zamora in Raíz. Cuadernos de literatura de la Facultad de Letras, Madrid, 1948. The text comes from an actor’s copy, by José Franco (one of the actors in the 1937 premiere). In Raíz the play is entitled The Billy-Club Puppets. Farsa guiñolesca en seis cuadros (Puppet farse in six scenes). Aguilar will later add “and a warning”.
