Octavio Solis

Octavio Solis

Considered by many to be one of the most prominent Latino playwrights in America, Octavio Solis’ works both draw on and transcend the Mexican-American experience. He has written over twenty plays that have been mounted across the country at companies such as the California Shakespeare Theatre, the Yale Repertory Theatre, and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Mr. Solis has received the Pen Center Literary Award for Drama, the United States Artists Fellowship, the National Latino Playwriting Award, a Playwriting Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Roger L. Stevens award from the Kennedy Center.
