This valuable new edition combines the two best-known plays by Florencio Sanchez, the Uruguayan playwright who lived from 1875 to 1910. The success of La Gringa and Barranca Abajo launched the so-called gauchesque genre in the theatre of the River Plate, and Sanchez's themes, characterization, and dialogue created a short-lived development in something akin to a national drama.
