This interview constitutes Luis Enrique Gutiérrez Ortiz Monasterio's last public interview. The esteemed playwright passed away on May 23, 2022, in the city of Xalapa (Veracruz, Mexico), leaving the Mexican theater community, his family, and friends mourning his loss and honoring his legacy. This interview was supposed to be carried out over various conversations. However, it was only possible to complete it in two conversations due to reasons beyond LEGOM's control. This has left me with many questions that I will not be able to ask the playwright and my friend. I wish to add that in addition to the official record of his works produced up until 2018, others have been appended, including his creative and pedagogical activities during the pandemic lockdown. I would also like to extend my appreciation to Luis Mario Moncada, director of the Universidad Veracruzana Theater Organization (ORTEUV), for providing the images featured in this interview, which belong to the Company. Special thanks are also owed to Prof. Ana Puga and Dr. Bernard Gordillo for their assistance with this translation.
