This first anthology in English dedicated exclusively to Spanish-American women playwrights includes eight plays by award-winning authors who have received national and international acclaim.
While these playwrights articulate concerns similar to those of their male counterparts-social injustice, the question of identity, the role of art, the power of writing-their feminist perspectives offer a fresh view of Spanish America by challenging traditional male representations of women.
While the plays humorously reveal the cultural and social politics of each country, they also examine seriously the absurdities of everyday life.
The playwrights include Isidora Aguirre (Chile), Sabina Berman (Mexico), Myrna Casas (Puerto Rico), Teresa Marichal (Puerto Rico), Diana Raznovich (Argentina), Mariela Romero (Venezuela), Beatriz Seibel (Argentina), and Maruxa Vilalta (Mexico).
