Daughter of a Cuban Revolutionary – Destinos 3rd Chicago International Latino Theater Festival


Los Angeles | Midwest Premiere

Autobiographical –  Solo Performance

70min

Written by Marissa Chibas

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.

Co-presented by Chicago Latino Theater Alliance and Goodman Theatre.

In English with sprinkles of Spanish.

Admission: $25-30

Tue-Fri 7:30pm, Sat 2pm & 8pm, Sun 2pm
