The play has been declared great by the spectators and readers because of their literary discussion of subjects affecting people. The playwrights, on the other hand, have also been declared great in their own countries, and are now brought to Philippine readers in their very own Filipino language. The translated works have been staged, but only to limited audiences. It is hoped that in the published form a wider audience can be reached by the plays and that they last longer in the readers’ consciousness.
Other works translated by Bienvenido Lumbera under the Entablado Klasiko series include:
- William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" ("Julio Cesar")
- Maxim Gorky's "Vragi" ("Kaaway")
- Nick Joaquin's "Portrait of an Artist as Filipino" ("Retrato ng Artista Bilang Filipino")
