Fueled by equal parts outrage, intelligence, and wit, "Fronteras Americanas" re-creates one person's struggle to construct a home between two cultures, while exploding the images and constructs built up around Latinos and Latin America. Guillermo Verdecchia twirls stereotypes and cliches, offers comparative histories, examines myths and mysticism, and provides lessons in language and dancing. This Governor General's Award-winning play, first published in 1993, was updated for its 2011 Soulpepper Theatre (Toronto) run, taking into account new economic relations and new material realities in which border questions are expressed.
Guillermo Verdecchia has won the Governor General's Award and four Chalmers Canadian Play Awards.
