Short Synopsis

Waiting for the revolution that she feels certain is near at hand, Cuba, a supporter of Fidel Castro, has set up camp in New York's Central Park. Having become something of a tourist attraction, she is interviewed by a reporter from the New York Times—who shudders apprehensively as Cuba shoots down the series of "spies" who approach her bastion, and harangues a watching crowd through a bullhorn. Inevitably the interview becomes a confrontation between her left-wing views and his right-wing reactions, with the end result an uneasy standoff. As he leaves the reporter remarks that she has given him no real story to file, as a story must have a beginning, a middle and an end. "But I have indeed given you a beginning," replies Cuba, "and I may yet give you a middle—and perhaps," she adds ominously, "an end as well."

Presented by New York's renowned ANTA Matinee Series, this timely and provocative fantasy makes an amusing, yet disturbing, statement on the nature of revolution. "Bitingly original a chilling comment on the inhumanity of war." —NY Times. "A perfect gem." —Village Voice.
