Set in Venice the day Orson Welles died, this extraordinary play by a leading Mexican writer stretches the imagination with artistic reveries and supernatural fantasies.

This English translation by Sebastian Doggart was first staged by the Southern Development Trust in August 1992 in the Teatro Nacional, Havana, Cuba, and then had its British premiere at the Richard Demarco Gallery Theatre, Edinburgh in August 1992.

Orchids in the Moonlight is also available in the collection Latin American Plays.

Press Quotes

'Rich in language and movement, fantasy and reality, sensuality and cruelty; as iconoclastic as the magic realist boom of the 1960s'
