María Irene Fornés (1930 - 2018)
 
America has produced no dramatist of greater importance than María Irene Fornés, a statement with which no serious person familiar with our literature and stage practice could disagree. She’s one of the greats: Her accomplishment is unimpeachable, enduring, protean. She ranks with Albee, Guare, and Mamet; with Caryl Churchill in England and the late Heiner Müller in Berlin. I have loved her work since I first started studying and thinking about playwriting. Her plays and productions altered my understanding of what theater is; what it aims at accomplishing; what it may demand of its audience; how it speaks to the political through the personal and vice versa; and the role beauty plays in the political, redemptive, transformational power of art. Fornés is a creator of worlds of tough, exigent, overwhelming beauty.
- Tony Kushner, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angels in America
