On February 6, 1929, Federico García Lorca witnessed the police raid the theater, forbid the performance and take away all the copies of the play, which was filed in the Pornography section of the General Directorate of Security. This is how Margarita Ucelay told the scholar Miguel García-Posada. The author was left without text. He may have had to reconstruct it in New York where we know that he read the work several times to the public. This version has been lost, but not the English translation by Mildred Adams.
