Abstract:

"The repertoire offered here provides actors with a multitude of stories about Latinx life in the Americas in all of its complexity. Nonetheless each scene provides performers with what they need from this volume for classroom and professional presentations: short, incisive, lucid scenes and compelling relationships and play worlds that make the richness of Latinx life perceivable by a variety of audiences. The content of scenes varies wildly, some take on contemporary racist and xenophobic political formations, others gesture to the long history and the effects of dictatorships in the Southern Cone. Others take on daily life in American cities, revealing the characters' struggles to survive. There are stories of leaving and coming home, plays based on Greek myths, plays that re-write history, plays that point to the racism of Hollywood and the industry. All are compelling and emotionally gripping, many are slyly humorous, a few downright heartbreaking. "Scenes for Latinx Actors" is an extraordinary resource for the American Theater of the 21st Century"--from Barnesnadnoble.com.
