The present volume brings together critical literary essays, reviews and testimonials from fellow playwrights. Throughout its pages, this collection provides a variety of interpretations and lenses in which to read Monge Rafuls's plays: among others, the representation of gender and sexuality, the search for identity in the Latin American diaspora in New York City and in the exile Cuban community.

Pedro R. Monge Rafuls, author of such classics as Nadie se va del todo, and Noche de ronda is not only one of the most unique and singular voices of the New York Latina/o theater world, but also is considered one of the great promoters of Latina/o theater and literature in the United States. In 1977 he founded OLLANTAY Center for the Arts, a cultural organization committed to supporting latina/o artists and authors, and in 1993, OLLANTAY Theater Magazine.
