Valeria can be seen as "The Mother" in The Puppet of Don Cristobal. Directed by José Ignacio and produced by PinProductions Company.
A raunchy farce, chock-full of Lorca’s trade-mark feminist undertones, this story follows an impotent rich man in his acquisition of a beautiful and unfortunately insatiable bride. Through greedy mothers and more than one flying mule, this puppet play for grown-ups spells out a lesson that bears repeating in these crazy times.
