Play

The Tragedy of Fidel Castro was adapted to a play and is going to be represent in New York, at 7:30 p.m. March 20 in GrUBER THEATER (STUDIO B) in Fine Arts
http://www.binghamton.edu/theatre/pro...

Tragedy's Cast was written by James Palombo, inspired by the internationally successful book, The Tragedy of Fidel Castro, by Joao Cerqueira. With special acknowledgement to the cast, and especially the production direction of Binghamton University Professor Tom Kremer

Tragedy's Cast reflects on what is called "political theater" in that it provides an expose of contemporary political, economic, social, religious and human nature concerns. Amid the Cuban missile crisis era, and with a bit of satire, the play promotes the notion that to have an informed citizenry all these elements must be considered for legitimate public dialogue to occur. Interestingly, the play is framed around the rehearsal of a play, an approach that is somewhat unconventional in style.

Teatro - EUA

http://www.revistaestante.fnac.pt/liv...

A obra A Tragédia de Fidel Castro, do português João Cerqueira, foi adaptada ao teatro nos Estados Unidos. Estreia a 20 de março na Universidade Binghamton, em Nova Iorque.

A peça intitula-se Tragedy’s Cast e aborda a natureza humana através de temáticas sociais, religiosas, económicas e políticas. A ação desenrola-se em torno do ensaio de uma peça de teatro, uma abordagem pouco convencional.

James Palombo, editor da revista Ragazine, foi o responsável pela adaptação da obra ao teatro, tendo trabalhado no seu argumento em conjunto com João Cerqueira, ao longo dos últimos dois anos.

The Tragedy of Fidel Castro - Amazon review

''The Tragedy of Fidel Castro is a long, slow, complex read, weightily self-conscious, with darkly tragi-comic humor, fierce determination, and a powerfully unsettling sense of unhinging divinities behind the scenes.''
