Critical response

Some critics gave mixed reviews of the production, complaining that after the first act, 'the play begins to bore' and because of the 'longwinded' delivery of the monologues, the English subtitles were hard to follow: http://www.theeagleonline.com/scene/story/16th-century-play-challenges-patriarchy-in-spanish

However, in a ver ypositive review of the production by Anthony J. Grubbs, the critic favourably recounts the decisions made by the director, and notes that the production was the subject of a lively debate at the 2007 Association for Hispanic Classical Theatre conference in El Paso.
