This new annotated edition of Galdós's second staged play, La loca de la casa (1893), is the second in the series The Theatre of Galdós launched in 1992 to mark the centenary of this great writer's turn to the stage. All manuscripts, adaptaciones and reviews available in the Casa-Museo in Las Palmas and the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid have been consulted in order to provide as informed an edition as possible. Issues of class and gender are of particular interest in La loca de la casa, where social classes clash and then fuse as the power of motherhood is exploited and arguably abused.
