RODOLFO SANTANA rose to fame early in his career, becoming one of the best known playwrights in Latin America via his “The Business Does Not Excuse a Moment of Insanity,“ which was turned into a film by Mauricio Wallerstein.
He then became even more famous across the Spanish-speaking world (and beyond) through another play, The Entertainer.
With nearly fifty plays - and at least eight screenplays - to his credit, his most important works besides THE LADIES ROOM are: Looking Into the Stands, I Like You Dancing Boleros on My Body, Never Lose Your Head Over a Swedish Doll, Encounter in the Dangerous Park, and The Angel Lost in a Hostile City (winner of the Casa de las Americas Prize in 2003) the English versions of most of the above having been brought to English by Prof. Charles Philip Thomas
