It emerged in the mid-1960s in tandem with Chicano participation in the American Civil Rights Movement and began to revive and recuperate a long history of theatre in Spanish in North America. Initially it was a theatre of, and for, marginalised people of Mexican ancestry suffering discrimination in the United States and encompassed a rejection of American society and culture and a commitment to the struggle for social justice.

Through activism Chicanos were able to benefit from increased grant support to minority arts but with the fragmentation of the Civil Rights Movement funding for Chicano theatre became scarce and its practitioners were obliged to find new modes of survival, including an affluent audience base.

El Teatro de la Esperanza, from Santa Barbara, California, was one such group and their development from amateur theatre group to professional troupe is studied in detail in this doctoral dissertation which is essential reading for Chicano Studies and American Drama majors alike. Please note that while the text is in English some Spanish is used in quotations.
