This probing drama by a very talented new Hispanic playwright was a co winner of a very prestigious national playwrighting contest sponsored by CBS

"It's a play about a bright, Americanized son's tortured efforts to break away from his immigrant parents a break that can't be made until the assimilated hero learns to accept the ethnic heritage that he has spent his life trying to suppress. The play's vigor derives from the firm delineation of the daily life of the Iglesias, who live in a dilapidated house bereft of a phone, water and a working furnace. In the hands of a less assured writer these squabbles could easily look like ridiculous Latin caricature. Here they become entirely credible articulations of the conflicts within a family that no longer shares a common tongue" ~ N.Y. Times

"A fine ... sensitively written ethnic drama" ~ Other Stages
