Spanish Plays by Elyse Dodgson

Book Description

A collection of modern Spanish plays in translations made by practising English playwrights. Sergei Belbel's "Caresses" paints a disturbing picture of contemporary society against a background of urban alienation. In "The Scorched Garden" by Juan Mayorga, a group of inmates in a mental hospital unveil their histories and madness. "Bazaar" by David Planell addresses the immigrant experience in Spain as undercurrents of racism surface in the course of a hilarious attempt to get an accident video shown on a "You've Been Framed" style TV programme. Set in contemporary Seville, Antonio Onetti's "Bleeding Hearts" portrays a naive, middle-aged transvestite who encounters a petty thief nicknamed "sour face". "Rodeo" by Lluisa Cunille is a study of obsession and delusion. And in "Wolf's Kiss", Paloma Pedrero portrays a young woman returning to her rural village home to await her Parisian lover despite the hostility of the villagers.
