Nilo Cruz

Published by Theatre Communications

Nilo Cruz is the most produced Cuban American playwright in the United States and was the first dramatist of Hispanic descent to receive the Pulitzer Prize

In his plays, Cruz almost always journeys back to Cuba, even when the play is not set there. Cruz is a sensualist, a conjurer of mysterious voyages and luxuriant landscapes

He is a poetic chronicler, a documentarian of the presence of Latin people in American life, conveying the strength and persistence of the Cuban spirit through a wholly dramatic imagination

Thus Volume offers ...

Two Sisters and a Piano - "Cruz's tightly constructed study of incarcerated sisters provides the spine for an authentic study of oppression that bends but never breaks the human spirit"~ Variety

Beauty of the Father - "He is that rare American scribe who embraces the role of stage poet and the legacy of Tennessee Williams" ~ The Seattle Times

Hortensia and the Museum of Dreams - "Cruz explores all kinds of loss ... lost childhood, lost freedom, lost innocence. Yet he infused "Hortensia" with joy, with desire, with humor and hope and healing" ~ The Miami Herald

Lorca in a Green Dress - "Like Lorca, Cruz is a lyrical writer in whom the surreal is grounded in the musical world of the senses ... it is fresh, wonderful and dazzling" ~ Mail Tribune (Oregon)

Also includes the one-act play Capriccio
