Cocktail Time in Cuba
By Rogelio Martinez
A new play produced in cooperation with Primary Stages in New York
Directed by Ari Edelson
March 11-14, 2010
In partnership with Primary Stages in New York City, long known for introducing new plays by acclaimed playwrights including Horton Foote, A.R. Gurney, Willy Holtzman, Romulus Linney, Donald Margulies, Terrence McNally, John Henry Redwood, John Patrick Shanley, and Lee Blessing, the Brandeis Theater Company presents a new play from Rogelio Martinez, one of the emerging playwrights who participated in the Dorothy Streslin Writer's Group at Primary Stages. Fidel Castro disappeared from public life in August 2006; Michael, an American journalist, travels to an awakening Cuba with hope of interviewing Castro, but first he must navigate a post-Communist labyrinth of quirky bureaucracy. Cuba casts a spell on Michael that lures him away from a life and world he thought he knew and loved.
Made possible through generous support from the Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, The Brandeis Arts Council, The Jaffe Foundation and the Herbert and Kim Marie Beigel New Play Fund.
"Cocktail Time in Cuba" was originally commissioned by the Atlantic Theater Company.
