Synopses & Reviews
Drama. Latino/ Latina Studies. Translated from the Spanish and edited by Luis F.Gonzales-Cruz and Ann Waggoner Aken. Beginning in the 1930s and continuing through the 1950s, a succession of dramatic groups appeared in Havana, introducing select Cuban audiences to the artistic trends that have been revolutionizing the European stage since the turn of the Twentieth Century. From this dynamic theater movement emerged several first-rate playwrights among whom stand out Julio Matas, author of Deviations, Carlos Felipe, author of The Chinaman, and Virgilio Pinera, author of An Empty Shoebox, included here. Together, these plays represent some of the most outstanding and broad-ranging theater traditions in Cuba before and after the revolution.
Three great plays of Cuban theater published here for the first time.
Starting in the 1930s and continuing through the 1940s and 1950s, a succession of dramatic groups appeared in Havana, introducing select Cuban audiences to the artistic trends that had been revolutionizing the European stage since the turn of the century. By the mid-1950s theatrical activity had reached a peak, and notable Cuban playwrights had come into the forefront. Central among them were the three playwrights and the important works contained in this essential volume of plays.
