Dark Comedy

In the Eye of the Hurricane is Machado's fourth play based on the tribulations of his family in Cuba. It is 1960 in a small Cuban town. A family gathers for a sumptuous, leisurely lunch of shrimp and avocado only to find Fidel Castro is nationalizing the family bus company: the business in which the entire family has invested all of its energies and all of its resources. The business is the symbol of the family and everything they want: money and a lot of it. Machado describes In the Eye of the Hurricane as a play about "the moment...It's about when their lives were really in crisis. It's not about recalling. It's not about getting there. It's about the moment when you lose everything." This play is a part of Machado's Before and After the Revolution series, a group of four plays about the Cuban Revolution. Other plays in the series are:Modern Ladies of Guanabacoa,Once Removed, and Havana is Waiting
Appeared at the Humana Festival of New American plays at the Actors' Theatre of Louisville.
