dc.description.abstract As late as the 195s, Mexican theatre was still largely oriented to plays from Europe. The successful production of original plays by Xavier Villaurrutia and Rodolfo Usigli became an inspiration to Mexican playwrights. The purpose of this thesis is to examine fifteen works of the youngest playwrights . Chapter I deals with those plays whose theme is Alienation and Estrangement. Chapter II deals with those whose topic is mainly Eros and Frustration. Chapter II contains those plays which treat of Adolescence and the Generation Gap, while Chapter IV covers two plays whose theme is Philosophic Inquiry and Conflict. It is our purpose to demonstrate the validity of Mexican theatre produced by its own playwrights. It will also be seen that universality of theme does not diminish the originality and artistry of their presentation.
