Not the time to stay: the unpublished plays of Víctor Fragoso

Víctor Fragoso, Consuelo Martínez-Reyes (Translator)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Not the Time to Stay brings to light for the first time the marvellous work of Puerto Rican playwright Víctor Fragoso. Eight plays, edited and translated by Consuelo Martínez-Reyes, portray the socio-cultural issues Fragoso sought to expose: the choice and difficulties of migration, the clash between American and Puerto Rican societies, the oppression suffered by Latinos in the USA, homelessness, and domestic violence, among others. Fragoso played a key role in the New York City theatre scene in the 1970s, and in the overall interrogation of Puerto Rican and Latino identities in the USA. This new generation of Latinos will certainly find, in their rediscovery of Fragoso’s work, a visionary of social themes, literary and theater practices.

Selected, edited, translated and with an introduction by Consuelo Martínez-Reyes.
