Luis Alberto Heiremans
Luis Alberto Heiremans was an important Chilean playwright, considered one of the main instigators of the modernization of Chilean playwriting and one of the main voices of the generation that emerged in the 1950s, which particularly stood out because they explored new theatrical styles. Both existentialism and French theater influenced his work. Some of his most outstanding pieces include ¡Esta señorita Trini!, the first Chilean musical; the trilogy made up of Versos de ciego, El abanderado and El Tony chico and the trilogy Buenaventura, made up of El año repetido, El mar en la muralla and Arpeggione.
