AbstractThe following two plays were originally written in Spanish by Professor Ana Perches. They focus on historical and contemporary issues in Mexican-American society and contain interesting perspectives into events such as the Mexican Revolution and the Vietnam War. These works, which initially were available only to Spanish-speaking audiences, have been translated so that monolingual English speakers can now better understand and appreciate the culture of our neighbors to the south. In addition to the two plays, this thesis includes a reflection upon the theory of translation involved while completing this project and a presentation of the challenges confronted.
