The first collection of plays in English from the influential and radical Chilean playwright and director, Ramon Griffero, whose plays from the late 1980s to the present have been essential components in the resurgence of contemporary Chilean theatre. Adam Vers nyi's translations will bring Griffero's contributions to theatre to the English-speaking-world for the first time.

Having been forced to leave Chile at the time of the military coup in 1973, because of his radical political activities, Ramon Griffero returned in the early 1980s. As an openly gay former revolutionary, he founded the theatre company Teatro del Fin de Siglo, and 'El Trolley', a cultural space for resistance to the Pinochet dictatorship.
