Cara Mia Theatre presents Yemaya's Belly
A Cuban boy is born into a humble farming family, but after his first taste of cold Coca-Cola, he dreams of a world beyond his family's meager acre. Naively yearning to meet the "President of America," Yemaya’s Belly follows his epic journey into manhood and materialism, from farm to city, to a raft sailing to the New World.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Water by the Spoonful and a collaborator with Lin-Manuel Miranda on the musical In The Heights, Quiara Alegría Hudes creates an unflinching view of Cuban life and the struggle to reach the United States of America through whimsy and brutal honesty.
Performed in English. Suitable for general audiences.
