Summary
"La Turista is an allegory. The play is set in hotel rooms in the U.S. and Mexico. In the first act Kent and Salem are painfully sunburned. A doctor is summoned when Kent succumbs to "la turista" and the doctor and his assistant exorcize the disease with all the accoutrements of witchcraft including the decapitation of two roosters. In the second act Kent and Salem are back in the States; this time Kent has sleeping sickness and the doctor and his assistant are full of platitudes, self-involvement and useless advice. Kent can no more cope with his primitive disease than he can with his contemporary predicament because cure or waking up is irrational--cure or wake up to what?"--Cover
