Here for the first time are collected in Spanish three of the best known plays of Carlos Morton, one of the most celebrated and widely produced Hispanic-American playwrights living today.
Rancho Hollywood: Sueno de California (translated by Iona Weissberg) pointedly satirizes film stereotypes of Latinos.
Johnny Tenoria: Acto teatral chicano (translated by Eduardo Rodriguez Solis) places the centuries-old Don Juan legend into a contemporary Chicano framework.
And El Jardin (translated by Manuel Martin Jr.) presents nothing less than a comic riff on the biblical creation story, this time featuring Adan and Eva.
Generous, full-page illustrations throughout the text, taken from successful productions, make this volume not only a necessity for theatre students and professionals, but a delight for all lovers of the Hispanic stageor anyone who enjoys a sly laugh.
