"Barcelona's theatre has experienced a remarkable renaissance in the years since the end of the Franco dictatorship. First, performance groups such as La Fura dels Baus, Els Joglars, Dagoll-Dagom, and La Cubana flourished with distinctive productions in which spectacle and movement predominated. In 1976, the Teatre Lliure began to set new production standards with a repertory of international plays. Soon the Catalan language, suppressed for more than three decades, became the vehicle of expression for new playwrights who challenged the performance groups with a "teatre de text." The new plays in this collection represent outstanding playwrights of three generations."--BOOK JACKET.
