Orchids in the Moonlight
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.
Carlos Fuentes' play Orchids in the Moonlight was written in 1982. 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.
