The great Spanish actress Margarita Xirgu premiered this work of Benavente with great success. The work was not without controversy because of its references to homosexuality. Coming from a good family is a thrilling story where seduction, power and conflicts of interest run the characters.

Benavente won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1922. He treated all the theatrical genres and developed a broad gallery of human characters. Many of his plays have been taken to cinema with success and many versions for TV have been made. Benavente’s dialogues are excellent, full with irony. He has been compared to Oscar Wilde.
