This anthology features a collection of translated plays by Argentine actress and playwright Susana Torres Molina. The seven pieces gathered in this collection are some of the works that established Torres Molina’s reputation as one of the most outstanding and innovative female playwrights in contemporary Latin American theatre. Each piece not only reveals the author’s creative talents as a dramatist, director, and stage designer, but also offers an aesthetic perspective that challenges more realistic and conventional forms of playwriting.
