She is the translator of Chekhov Volume I: Four Plays, Chekhov: The Early Plays, and Chekhov's Vaudevilles, and she has written a play called, "I take your hand in mine", which was suggested by the letters of Anton Chekhov and Olga Knipper, all published by Smith and Kraus.From Library Journal:
This short two-character play is based on the love letters of Russian playwright Anton Chekhov and his famous actress wife, Olga Knipper. Rocamora, an expert translator of two Chekhov anthologies, brings the couple's six-year courtship and marriage vividly to life. With authenticity, passion, and sensitivity, Rocamora reveals the couple's literary and theatrical careers, as well as their trying domestic life apart owing to Chekhov's poor health. References are made to the literary incubation of Chekhov's four major plays: The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, The Three Sisters, and The Cherry Orchard. In her short introduction, Rocamora explains the literary basis for writing this play. She also provides the cast of characters, the setting, and a pronunciation guide, which make it a handy acting edition. Eloquent and moving, the play provides delightful reading; it is a brilliant dramatization of this creative couple and their relationship. Recommended for both academic and public libraries.DMing-ming Shen Kuo, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, IN
