70 minutes with no intermission

Daughter of a Cuban Revolutionary

This solo tour de force tells an astonishing tale centered on three towering figures in the life of performer Marissa Chibas: her father, Raul Chibas, who co-wrote the manifesto for the Cuban revolution with Fidel Castro; her uncle, Eddy Chibas, who was the frontrunner for presidency in 1951 before committing suicide during a live radio broadcast; and her mother, Dalia Chibas, Miss Cuba runner-up in 1959. Zigzagging through her own stories and key episodes in the history of her illustrious family, Chibas gives an impassioned, live wire performance that is propelled by her near-death experience in the Venezuelan Amazonia.

Presented in English.

Please note: the performance on October 8 is not open to the public and unavailable for purchase.

A co-presentation with Chicago Latino Theater Alliance as part of
Destinos—3rd Chicago International Latino Theater Festival
