This volume contains a translated collection of plays by the important Chilean playwright and director Ramón Griffero. Well-known and respected in South America and Europe, Griffero is little-known to the English-speaking world. Forced to leave Chile at the time of the military coup in 1973 because of his radical political activities, 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. These plays have been produced widely in Latin America and Europe and published in many languages, including French, German and Italian, and now in English. Your Desires in Fragments and Other Plays in English translation makes his important contributions to theatrical innovation and the intersection of art and politics accessible to a much wider audience than before. Includes the plays: Your Desires in Fragments, Cups of Wrath, Midday Lunches or Petit Dejeuner du Midi, Sebastopol (Desert Times), Downstream (Río Tormentoso), Ecstasy or Steps to Sainthood, Long Live the Republic: The Three Antonio's, Gorda, The Opera Cleaners and Legua's Gynecologist.
