Biographical details

A Colombian playwright born in 1788. General Francisco de Paula Santander commissioned him to write a play about Policarpa “La Pola” Salavarrieta. (Ardila, 464, 469-70.)

When this play was performed for the first time in a Bogotá theatre, the audience intervened to stop the shooting of the heroine, "La Pola". The play was thus transformed from a drama into a melodrama. (Arciniegas, 692)

Related to María Josefa Domínguez de Roche and her daughter María de los Dolores Roche Domínguez? He could be their father.

He died in 1858.
