Illuminating Veronica at the Atlas Theater
Atlas Theater presents Illuminating Veronica, by Rogelio Martinez, at the Atlas Theater from 26 Jul - 4 Aug 2007.
It's 1961. Fidel has turned Havana upside down. Veronica's family has fled the country, leaving her behind to find a new family. Pregnant & ready to participate in whatever Fidel throws her way, she is not fully prepared for everything the revolution has in store. Illuminating Veronica is a play about betrayal & hope, that looks at Castro's Cuba, not as a demonic state, nor as a perfect paradise, but as a work in progress.
Directed by Michael Sexton, Illuminating Veronica features Alec Beard, Chris DeOni, Michael Earle Fajardo, MacKenzie Meehan, Christina Pumariega & Maria Elena Ramirez.
Set and costume designs by Sean Tribble, with lighting by Driscoll Otto and sound by Emily Wright.
