"Teatro de la Gruta XVII" is a collection of five dramatic pieces that seek to critically highlight the idea that violence has become a common way to understand reality, employing corrosive humor, pop songs or contemporary art, and reflections on the very meaning of theater to make this point and reveal an overarching sense of disenchantment. Authors include: Sergio López Vigueras, Manuel Barragán, Manolo Díaz, José Manuel Hidalgo, and Víctor Hugo Velo Muruato. Contents include: "La bala", "Rumis", "Ataraxia o las ganas siempre sobran", "Aviones", and "El hombre que escuchaba baladas de Alejandra Guzmán". These writers won the Gerardo Mancebo del Castillo National Prize for Young Dramaturgy for this work in 2017.
