Two Sisters and a Piano and Other Plays
Nilo Cruz is the most produced Cuban-American playwright in the U.S. 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. He conveys the strength and persistence of the Cuban spirit through a wholly dramatic imagination. This volume also includes A Bicycle Country and the one-act play, Capricho.
