    schema:description ""Overall, Huerta establishes a pattern of theatrical activity that is closely linked with both Western European traditions of realism and an indigenous philosophy seen in contemporary Chicano culture. Further, Huerta examines how the playwrights challenge the Roman Catholic Church and its priests, while demonstrating an abiding faith. The final chapter explores plays that challenge the tradition of the patriarchy by openly discussing the issues of homosexuality. The book contains photographs from key productions and will be invaluable to students, scholars and general theatregoers."--Jacket."@en ;
