Audition Description

Exiles - Local EPA

When a storm leaves their tiny vessel helplessly adrift at sea, six Cuban refugees find themselves in a desperate battle against the elements, each other and their past. Set during the 1980 Mariel Boatlift when Fidel Castro allowed Cuban-Americans to bring family members by boat to America, but only if they took “undesirables” with them, this new play from a Cuban-born playwright sheds light on a rarely-told, but fascinating story in American history.

    Cuban of African descent. The former employee of a Havana advertising agency who, despite being loyal to Castro and the Revolution, was charged with treason and imprisoned as a young man for helping a friend escape to America. He has been released from the prison mental ward, his passage on Rolando's boat arranged by the government as a way of purging the island of unwanted citizens. Torture, prison, and guilt have altered his perception of reality; his mind jumps between past and present without warning. Still, he remains a talented artist with a wry sense of humor veiled beneath his pro-Castro ranting.

    Cuban-American of Spanish descent, born in Miami. Rolando’s son. Optimistic, eager, kind, brave, full of practical knowledge but still naive.
