Drama. Latino/ Latina Studies. Translated from the Spanish and edited by Luis F.Gonzales-Cruz and Ann Waggoner Aken. Beginning in the 1930s and continuing through the 1950s, a succession of dramatic groups appeared in Havana, introducing select Cuban audiences to the artistic trends that have been revolutionizing the European stage since the turn of the Twentieth Century. From this dynamic theater movement emerged several first-rate playwrights among whom stand out Julio Matas, author of Deviations, Carlos Felipe, author of The Chinaman, and Virgilio Pinera, author of An Empty Shoebox, included here. Together, these plays represent some of the most outstanding and broad-ranging theater traditions in Cuba before and after the revolution.
