La Chunga



La Chunga

Mario Vargas Llosa

The title-figure of La Chunga is "a tall, ageless woman" who runs a restaurant-bar. The play is set in 1945.

Among the regulars of la Chunga's establishment are the so-called "superstuds", four men who come here to drink and play dice. The play begins with them at play -- and one of them asks a question that's clearly been on all their minds: "Are you never going to tell us what you did that night with Meche, Chunga ?"
