A Cuban Journey
World Premiere
By Hannah Benítez
Directed by Stuart Meltzer

Accompanied by his millennial children, a Cuban man returns to the country from which he escaped 50 years earlier on a quest to recover a precious family heirloom. Together, the family embarks on a journey of closure, truth and cultural connection.

Through a series of misadventures with funny and fascinating locals, Carlos, Michi and Danny find themselves in a place frozen in time but surprisingly familiar. GringoLandia promises to be a uniquely theatrical experience with live music and video. This mixed-media event will transport audiences to the beautiful yet heartbreaking island, which is so close — and so far away.

Hannah Benítez is a fresh and vital voice emerging in the world of theater. Benítez was recently listed as one of the playwrights to watch from American Theatre magazine.

This fascinating new play by this gifted young Latina playwright explores the collision of two worlds, and the importance of accepting our past in order to move into the future. Once again, Zoetic Stage takes great pride in finding and presenting exciting new work by local writers.
