The Cook explores the personal, social and political cost of "Revolution." It is a social realist play that brings to mind Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun. We observe the relationship of Gladys and Carlos over forty years beginning on the eve of Castro's rise to power in 1959. The rise and fall of Castro's regime is reflected in the character's relationships, making it a truly human story.

What happens to the dream once the dreamer is awakened? She goes to "work" in an attempt to reconstruct that which has almost been destroyed: the human spirit.

Please join us for this beautiful tale of struggle, love, family and survival.
