Even though U.S.-Cuba relations have soften, and Americans can now catch a quick flight to the island nation for sun and fun--the oppressive Castro regime still casts a shadow on the Cuban diaspora.
In YOLO’s first original production, writer/performer Nairoby Otero examines the struggle, hope, and the dignity of a Cuban family in ‘Til Sunday as part of the eighth annual Hollywood Fringe at Davidson/Valentini Theatre LA LGBT Center.
Based on a true story that follows Claridad, a 14-year-old Cuban girl, through the span of 13 years leading up to the day of her “quinces” in 1985 New Orleans.
Directed by Michael D’angora, ‘Til Sunday is based on the real-life struggles of Cuban families that came to the United States in the early 1970s seeking political asylum. With its cross-cultural storyline, the play tackles the very issues so prevalent in our national discourse. 'Til Sunday gives a glimpse of a family that defines what it means to be Cuban, what it means to be an immigrant, and, ultimately, what it means to be American.
