REVIEWS

"It's a play about a bright, Americanized son's tortured efforts to break away from his immigrant parents, a break that can't be made until the assimilated hero learns to accept the ethnic heritage that he has spent his life trying to suppress. The play's vigor derives from the firm delineation of the daily life of the Iglesias, who live in a dilapidated house bereft of a phone, water and a working furnace. In the hands of a less assured writer these squabbles could easily look like ridiculous Latin caricature. Here they become entirely credible articulations of the conflicts within a family that no longer shares a common tongue." - New York Times

"A fine ... sensitively written ethnic drama." - Other Stages

The House of Ramon Iglesia premiered at the Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York City in March of 1983 under the direction of Jack Gelber.
