The wonderful Tlaloc Rivas has assembled what is probably the best list to introduce the breadth, power and beauty of Latino playwriting in the US today.  I am honored to have marea included on this list which features such incredible talents such as Caridad Svich, Quiara Alegria Hudes, Naomi Iizuka, and Nilo Cruz.  

marea is a very special play and a very difficult one for me.  It is published in two forms: an early draft that was the version used in workshops at the Public and New Dramatists and a later draft which was the result of the incredible collaboration I had with Scott and the cast and company of Packawallop’s beautiful workshop of the play at HERE Arts Center in 2009.  I urge you to buy both versions and see the evolution of this play.  The first is in my collected plays and the 2nd is in Envisioning the Americas (which contains many plays by many of these writers!) both published by NoPassport Press.
