''Our personality is made up of many facets we have, ourselves, forgotten.'' Carlos Fuentes In this play a lady and her servant inhabit an abandoned house. Both are blind, yet each one believes that the other can see, that the other is their guardian, their guide. The lady expects protection from her servant, the servant from his lady. Both await in darkness the return of the lord of the house, gone six days before. The action takes place during the seventh-day vigil. Description in Spanish: ''Toque mi cuerpo y le dije que sentia verguenza, que mi cuerpo no era mas que un poco de tierra, de pena, de desolacion, de esclavitud.'' En esta obra teatral, Donata y su criado, el Duque, habitan una casa que parece colapsarse. Ambos son ciegos, pero cada uno cree que solo el lo esta y que el otro ve; cada uno cree que el otro es su guardian, su lazarillo, su propiedad. Ambos esperan el regreso del marido de Donata, quien ha fijado con severidad las reglas de conducta de su casa y luego abandono a los ciegos a las tentaciones de la libertad: convertirse en otro, librarse tanto de la indiferente ausencia como de la promiscua sospecha del senor.
