Espinosa's purpose . . . is to engage students' participation in learning Spanish language and culture. She employs diverse speech patterns throughout as characters speak in Argentine, Mexican, and peninsular Spanish, as well as in English. . . . Students will enjoy the quirky humor of the plays and might be inspired to write their own sketches based on history and contemporary events. I applaud the creative efforts of Espinosa and her collaborators. -- Judy B. McInnis, Ph.D., University of Delaware, The Modern Language Journal, John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
