"This bilingual edition combines the original English-language version with the first-ever Spanish translation of the critically acclaimed play by Luis Valdez, a work that cracked open the depiction of Chicanos on the stage, challenging viewers to revisit a troubled moment in our nation's history. From the moment the myth-infused character El Pachuco, burst onto the stage, literally, cutting his way through the drop curtain with a switchblade, Luis Valdez spurred a revolution in Chicano theater.
