Aquí, Luchando: a Div III staged reading (FREE)

Aquí, Luchando (Here in the Struggle) is an original documentary  
theater play about the multifaceted characters in Cuba's black market  tourism industry created from over a dozen interviews with  
tobacco-sellers, unlicensed tour guides, sex workers, and street  
vendors in Havana. A critical examination of Cuba's dependence on the  tourist economy and of the relationship between foreigner and local,  the play is a Spanglish production that relies heavily on projections  and looks at what survival means when it de
pends on selling an image (or a physical body) to the outside world.
