Bullfight: A Play in Three Acts
"A Mexican bullfighter, upon being injured, went to America to become a prize fighter. But he wouldn't play ball with the promoters, and so returned home. We see him greeted lovingly by his brother, also a bullfighter, and his brother's new bride. But as we see more of the man, we also see that he is a fake. He never had a fight in the States, and advanced no higher than a bat-boy. Moreover, he has no scars from bullfighting, only a scar of fear in his mind. He takes over training of his brother, managing a seduction on the side. Finally, and reluctantly, on the big day, the younger brother realizes that his hero is a big fake. He goes into the arena, is distraught at his brother's commands to him, and is killed. There are various exciting scenes in the play, of weird incantations, cockfights, and tense crowds at the arena."--Publisher's description.
