The development of Hispanic theater, both in Spanish and in English, is one of the most important trends in contemporary American drama. This welcome anthology presents six plays, all written in English during the 1980s by Hispanic-American playwrights. While the authors (including the influential Maria Irene Fornes) represent several Hispanic cultures, and their works range from realistic to avant-garde, the plays examine the themes of politics, religion, and family within the context of a common heritage. Each includes an interview with the playwright and a brief biographical sketch. Highly recommended for drama collections.Susan Thach Dean, Chicago P.L.
