Havana is Waiting and Other Plays
“The existential pain of exile, the confusions of sexual identity and the complex legacies of the Cuban revolution are predominant [in] Mr. Machado’s writing,” –The New York Times
Eduardo Machado explores his lifelong themes with humor and passion in Havana Is Waiting (a writer returns to Cuba after thirty years), Kissing Fidel (a comedy set in Miami funeral parlor), The Cook (chronicling Cuban history), and Crocodile Eyes (inspired by Federico García Lorca).
Eduardo Machado is the author of more than forty plays. Born in Cuba, his plays have been widely performed. He is artistic director of INTAR Theatre and head of playwriting at New York University.
