Abstract

This is a creative Spanish thesis, containing a full-length play in Spanish, a glossary of Argentina-specific argot, a reflective paper analyzing process, content, and genre, as well as a biography of thematic and stylistic references. The themes evoked in this Spanish-speaking play mainly focus on friendship developed through hardship, within the context of marginalized childhoods in Latin America. This play was inspired and influenced by my experiences in Buenos Aires, as well as the classes I took within the University of Iowa Spanish Department.
