Havana, 2000. Fidel Castro has just unveiled a lifesize statue of John Lennon. But 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. In January 2004 El Concierto won the Pinhero Prize for the Best Cuban Play of the past two years as well as a new prize, jointly awarded by the Royal Court Theatre and Nick Hern Books, for the Best New Cuban Play by an author under 35. El Concierto premiered at the Sotano Theatre, Havana, in 2003. The Concert had its English premiere as part of the Royal Court's Cuba Real season on 30 March 2004. It is published in this edition in both Spanish and English.
