This study examines the social and cultural causes of the decline in political theater in Venezuela during the second half of the twentieth century. The author focuses primarily on the following representative plays: La trampa de los demonios (1977) by César Rengifo, La guerrita de Rosendo (1976) by Gilberto Pinto, La farra (1974) and La empresa perdona un momento de locura (1978) both by Rodolfo Santana.

Reviews

“Little has been done to review political theater in Venezuela. This book addresses this issue. It will bring attention to a little studied period in the history of Latin American Theater. It will also stress how important authors were influenced by social issues and represented them in a unique fashion.” – Dr. Raquel Chang-Rodríguez, Distinguished Professor, The Graduate Center, City University of New York
