"Comala" by Zohn-Muldoon at Rialto Center for the Arts

Comala is based on the novel Pedro Páramo, by the great Mexican author Juan Rulfo. Comala does not encompass the entire novel, but only relates the part that Juan Preciado plays in the complex and multi-dimensional story. Juan Preciado is the legitimate son of Pedro Páramo. He guides the reader, narrating in the first person, until death surprises him midway through the novel. From that point on, he becomes a peaceful spectator, in the "chorus" of the dead, as the story continues to unfold without him.
