'Based on real-life struggles of Cuban families that came to the United States in the early 1970's seeking political asylum, 'Til Sunday, a one-woman play, tells the story of a young mother coming from Cuba to New Orleans with her daughter in search of a better life.

Til Sunday is a powerful one-woman play about a Cuban family's immigration to the United States during Fidel Castro's regime. #hff17 #neworleans #cubanamerican #soloshow #vivacubalibre #growinupcuban #castro #familia

Reviews

It's all heart-warming, but occasionally heart-searing. And certainly not to be missed by any Fringe-goer.

The story itself is all loveliness and filled with determination for more than just survival. Claridad and her mother live in a joy and hopefulness that is deeply embedded in the cultural soul of the Cuban people through dance, music and love. But also like so many immigrants, they live in two worlds, passionate to create a new life but also in conflict and sometimes sadness about who they are and questioning why they've left their old lives behind. ‘Til Sunday is a simultaneously lighthearted and playful, yet deeply evocative, intelligent portrayal of that reality.

Highly Recommended

‘Til Sunday is a beautiful story of two Cuban refugees starting over in New Orleans. Writer/Performer Nairoby Otero balances hope with disappointment perfectly leaving the audience uplifted, yet with no illusions of a fairy tale ending. Otero transitions between the three characters easily and uses not only her fine tuned acting chops, but specific staging and visual cues so it is obvious which character is speaking. This is a charming story, that is well told.

Otero portrays a number of characters in this one-woman tour de force revealing the story of the real-life struggles of a Cuban mother who ventures to New Orleans to provide a better life for her little girl.
