Dark Comedy

Tossed into the United States after a revolution that backfired and an invasion (at the Bay of Pigs) that failed, with no possessions other than what jewelry they could sneak out, Mr. Machado's Cubans cope with exotic institutions like Halloween and the Presbyterian Church and suffer through menial jobs where they work beside Mexicans they look down upon as wetbacks. The play captures the bafflement and determination of a family uprooted by the Castro revolution and exiled in the U.S. The story Machado tells speaks directly to every citizen of the modern world who can't go home again. 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,In the Eye of the Hurricane, and Havana is Waiting
