The three plays in this collection—Waltz on a Merry-Go-Round (1975), Simpson Street (1979), and Women Without Men (1985)— are all milestones in the development of Hispanic American drama, but Simpson Street represents a turning point. Simpson Street’s enormous critical and popular success around the country and abroad established its place solidly in the mainstream of American drama. The play speaks with the authentic voice of the Puerto Rican community to all Americans of our deepest longing and fears in all our rich ethnic diversity; abroad, it speaks with the authentic voice of America to all peoples.
