In addition to a substantial introduction to the life and works of Federico García Lorca — avant-garde poet, playwright, and soul of Spain's 'Generation of '27' — this collection features vibrant new English translations of four of his plays.
The legacy of a dramatic, religious, and social iconoclast who died a martyr of the left in Civil-War Spain and who today is also embraced as a gay icon shines through Michael Kidd's stage-worthy new renderings of Yerma, Blood Wedding, The House of Bernarda Alba and a less-famous play: The Audience, a kaleidoscopic exploration of sexual identity and theatre.
