Book of Latin American Plays by Gwynne Edwards

Book Description

A collection of extraordinary, playable translations from across the Latin American continent, including a new Mario Vargas Llosa play In La Chunga by Mario Vargas Llosa a young gambler down on his luck lends his girlfriend to the lady bar-keeper for the night to pay off a debt. Four years later the girl has neither been seen nor heard of, and the gamblers meet to speculate on the events of that fateful night. In Paper Flowers by Egon Wolff, Eva, a lonely middle class woman puts up a tramp for the night out of the kindness of her heart, only to find that he intends to occupy her life as well as her house, reducing her once and for all to his state. Medea in the Mirror by Jose Triana is an extraordinary re-setting of the Medea story in the Cuban revolution of 1959. As Maria, a young mulatto takes her revenge on Julian for abandoning her for someone else - the play becomes a mirror for the events that took place when Castro ousted the Batista regime.

Lorca, Bunuel, Dali by Gwynne Edwards Lorca, Bunuel, Dali, Hardback (June 2009)

Lorca, Bunuel and Dali were, in their respective fields of poetry and theatre, cinema, and painting; their impact was felt far beyond the boundaries of their native Spain. But if individually they have been examined by many, their connected lives have rarely been considered. This work focuses on the ties that bind them.

Dona Rosita the Spinster by Gwynne Edwards Dona Rosita the Spinster, Paperback (July 2008)

A student edition of Lorca's moving play about fading beauty and thwarted love, presented with parallel English and Spanish texts. A full commentary, notes and questions help students' appreciation of the play.
