Information for Foreigners: Three Plays
One of Latin America's most important and prolific writers, Griselda Gambaro has focused on the dynamics of repression, complicity, and violence--specifically, the terror of violent regimes and their devastating effects on the moral framework of society.

The collection also includes The Walls and Antigona Furiosa.
