Contemporary Latina Playwrights and the Legacy of Maria Irene Fornes
A key way to view Latina plays today is through the foundational frame of playwright and teacher, Maria Irene Fornes, who has transformed American theatre. Considering Fornes’s legacy, this study explores how five award-winning contemporary playwrights continue to contest and complicate Latina theatre. The playwrights in this book include Pulitzer Prize–winner Quiara Alegría Hudes; Obie Award–winner Caridad Svich; Karen Elaine Romero, member of the Goodman Theatre Playwrights Zacarías, resident playwright at Arena Stage in Washington, DC; Unit in Chicago, IL; and Cusi Cram, company member of the LAByrinth Theater Company in New York City.
