JAIME SALOM, born in Barcelona, Spain in 1925, is probably Spain’s most successful and productive dramatist writing today. His first professional production was The Message (1955). During the 1960s he wrote 14 plays, of which the most outstanding are The Trunk of Disguises (1964), The House of the “Chivas” (1968) which ran for more than 700 performances in Barcelona, and The Heirs Apparent (1969). Since 1970 Salom’s style has been characterized as “psychological expressionism”. During the 1970s he wrote 7 plays, the best known of which is probably Bitter Lemon. In the 1980’s five plays appeared of which the best-known is The Cock’s Short Flight. Mr. Salom’s retirement from practice as an ophthalmologist in 1990, combined with his move to Madrid, where he lives with his actress wife, Montse, has led to a new burst of creativity. Other important plays are: Bonfire at Dawn (produced by Gala Theatre in Washington D.C.), Black Butterflies (produced by LATE in New York), One Hour Without Television, and The Empty Beach (both produced by the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre in New York). Thalia Spanish Theatre produced A Night With Clark Gable, Culpables, and in 2004 Almost a Goddess. THE LADIES OF AVIÑON premiered in Madrid, Spain in 2001 winning the CRITICS AWARD for BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR. www.jaimesalom.es
