Three Masterpieces of Cuban Theatre

In the 1930s and through the 1940s and 1950s, a succession of dramatic groups appeared in Havana, introducing select Cuban audiences to the artistic trends that had been revolutionizing the European stage since the turn of the century. By the mid-1950s theatrical activity had reached a peak, and notable Cuban playwrights had come into the forefront. Central among them were these three playwrights: Julio Matas, Carlos Felipe, and Virgilio Piñera.
