José Triana was born in Hatuey, Cuba. He emigrated to Spain in 1954 and studied acting at the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid. He began writing plays while he was living in Spain and continued to do so when he returned to Cuba after the revolution. Triana won the Casa de las Américas prize in 1966 for La noche de los asesinos. The play won him great praise and fame as a playwright but caused him to fall out of favour with the Cuban Ministry for Culture as the play was received as a depiction the ineptitude of Castros government. Triana has lived in Paris since 1980.
