Vilalta, Maruxa ,  Edward Huberman , & Sharon Magnarelli

The play won three awards: The Mexico Association of Drama Critics Best Play of Creative Research; The Society of Theatre Journalists Dramaturgy Prize; and the Claridades Best Play of the Year for 1991.


“ ... A veritable gallery of historical characters that renounces orthodox esthetics and is worthy of monumental fresco files across the stage that marks the fourth dimension of this work, divested of myth and wrapped in the knowledge of human nature ...” – Luis G. Basurto, Theatre Critic
