Richly authenticated both in details and in larger aspects, these five one-act plays, originally produced by the Carolina Playmakers at Chapel Hill and on various tours, offer an unusual combination of brilliant local color and truth about human nature everywhere. Well written, with skillful stage directions and notes on Mexican costume and Spanish pronunciation, they are highly practical for production.

Originally published in 1938.
