New proposal of the company Chévere (N.E.V.E.R.M.O.R.E.), an allegory of the construction of the Spanish nation-state from the railway line.

On 26 May 1927, the civil engineer José Fernández-España y Vigil died when the car he was driving fell into a ravine in A Bouciña Redonda, near the village of Rios (Ourense), while he was working on surveying the possible southern route for the Puebla de Sanabria-Ourense railway. According to the official version, the accident was due to limited visibility at night and his poor driving. The truth is that the railway's southern route was subsequently ruled out, and the line was laid through the Central Massif mountains of Ourense, at a huge cost both financially and in human lives. Why was the most expensive and most difficult route of all Spain's railway lines chosen? Why was the most densely populated, productive part of this frontier region left without any rail links?

To answer these questions, the company Chévere adapts the true crime documentary format to the stage, and presents the versions of the story passed down through the generations on a live set. It is an allegory of the construction of the Spanish nation state, as if it were the promise of a train that never arrived.

Show premiered on July 25 2019 at the MIT Ribadavia.
Chévere received the 2014 National Theatre Award from the Ministry of Culture and Sports.

The line Zamora - Ourense - Santiago - A Coruña
