A brother and a sister, whose lives were forever altered when their mother put them on a flight from Havana to the United States in 1961, return to their native land during the Pope's visit to Cuba. The brother and sister take their own path, as they search for recollection and healing. This tale of estranged siblings seeking to make sense of the childhood that was subtracted from their lives possesses an imaginative and lyrical landscape that elevates the material to a poetic universality.
"This is a play about loss and recovery, of dreams and memories. Like Tennessee Williams at his best, Cruz plays with reality and relationships. We can't rely on what we learn; we can't rely on what we feel. And like Williams, Cruz is not afraid of sexuality, exploring some of its more disruptive aspects." —Miami New Times. "Cruz explores all kinds of loss in HORTENSIA AND THE MUSEUM OF DREAMS: lost childhood, lost freedom, lost innocence. Yet he infuses HORTENSIA with joy, with desire, with humor and hope and healing." —Miami Herald.
