Carlos Manuel Editor- VAQUEEROS, CALACAS, AND HOLLYWOOD: CONTEMPORARY CHICANO PLAYS

VAQUEEROS, CALACAS, AND HOLLYWOOD: CONTEMPORARY CHICANO PLAYS

edited by Carlos Manuel

Four very different yet extremely personal works comprise VAQUEEROS, CALACAS, AND HOLLYWOOD: CONTEMPORARY CHICANO PLAYS. This collections covers topics from death and boxing to life as an immigrant, from Hollywood hero worship to sexual taboos. All of the plays reflect themes found in Chicano communities through out the United States. BARRIO HOLLYWOOD, by Elaine Romero, uses distinct cultural symbolism to explore tragedy, interracial dating, and family loyalty. Silvana Wood’s trilingual YO, CASIMIRO FLORRES mixes rituals, languages, and cultural traditions to craft an intellectual and historical drama that shed light on what being an immigrant, as well as a Chicano, means in today’s society. WE LOST IT AT THE MOVIES (WITH A SPECIAL APPEARANCE BY ROCK HUDSON), by Guillermo Reyes, offers us the story of a Chilean mother and son as they struggle to make it in the land of the free, and VAQUEEROS, BY CARLOS MANUEL, is an ethnodrama based on interviews that exposes hidden sexual practices among Chican/Latino men and their fear of being discovered.

Carlos Manuel is an assistant professor of theater and director of the Theatre Program at Bellarmine University. He obtained his MFA in playwriting from Arizona State University and his MA in directing from the University of New Mexico. His work focuses on the Latino experience.
