We saw "Las Tandas del Centenario" by Carlos Pascual. It was about a theater company putting on a show in 1910 to celebrate the Centennial of Independence. The Mexican Revolution came, followed by various changes in leadership -- so their play kept changing along the way to fit with the changing political context.
I didn't quite understand all of it (moments when I realize I have so much to learn still!), but I got the gist of it. Comedy is so much harder to follow when you don't know all the local vocab and historical background!
