Concert, The / El Concierto

Ulises Rodriquez Febles
 

A comedy about Beatlemania and a fascinating glimpse into the social and cultural complexities of Castro's Cuba.

Havana, 2000. Fidel Castro has just unveiled a lifesize statue of John Lennon. Former musician Johnny can remember a time, thirty years before, when the Beatles were not so celebrated in Cuba. He steals the statue and attempts to re-assemble his rock band. But dredging up the past only rubs salt into today's wounds.

Published in both the original Spanish and in English translation by William Gregory.

Winner of the 2004 Virgilio PiƱero Prize for Best Cuban Play and the Royal Court/NHB Award for Best New Cuban Play by an author under 35.



Cast : 6M, 3F (doubling required)
