Biographical Note

René Ariza was a Cuban actor, director and writer born in Havana in 1940. Ariza graduated from the Academia Municipal de Artes Dramáticas in 1959, eventually receiving the Premio de la Unión Nacional de Escritores y Artistas de Cuba (UNEAC) in 1967 for his play "La vuelta a la manzana."

An opponent of the Castro regime, he was jailed in 1974 for his political views until Amnesty International intervened and he was released to the United States in 1979.

Some of his most well-known plays include "Los tres cerditos y el lobo carnicero," the aforementioned "La vuelta a la manzana" and "El banquete." His unpublished work was destroyed during his time in prison, but he continued his creative pursuits until his death in California in 1994.
