    • Abstract:
      Gabriel Peveroni's Luna roja (2006), a chaotic play about a dysfunctional kingdom, features several characters who search for love, freedom, and power as they commit murder, quarrel with partners, search for soulmates, and threaten the queen's authority. This play delivers a profound commentary on the passage of time, the growing prevalence of violence, and the lack of originality in contemporary society. Conceived as a postmodern play, Luna roja shares a symbiotic relationship with Many Moons (1943), a children's book by James Thurber. This author argues that by subverting this intertextual reference, Peveroni sheds light on Thurber's work and provides fresh insight about the postmodern condition in Uruguay and beyond.
