A Cuban prison. The 1962 Missile Crisis. An American radio host beaming a constant stream of subversive conversation and music to this Caribbean island held captive by El Comandante, Fidel Castro. Two brothers and their sister await their individual and collective destinies by the cold, hard hand of a ruthless revolution. In the end is blood stronger than ideals? Can family survive the passions of rebellion? Two rooms. Two interrogations. One final conclusion.
"The performances in this ninety minute show are haunting, tapping into the dark side of human nature, conveying our fear of violence as well as our hunger for it. If only Ramos’s drama possessed the same sense of complexity. The problem with the script is that it mounts the soapbox and never gets off. Plays should have a point of view, but not to the point that it gets in the way of the richness of the characterizations." Full Review
