Good Cuban Girls

By Iraisa Ann Reilly

Directed by Josè Avilès


Location: Bob and Selma Horan Studio Theatre

A production of Teatro del Sol, in residence at Arden Theater Company


Marisol is a Cuban-American woman studying poetry at a liberal arts college, just far enough away from home. After a couple of days home for the summer, her gringo boyfriend visits to share in a traditional Cuban dinner and meet her family. Rice and beans are served up with an awkward argument about culture and politics. Marisol is left to choose between her family and her future, harboring a secret that may cause her grandmother’s instantaneous death. Good Cuban Girls is a coming of age story that navigates the first generation American struggle for cultural preservation in the face of exile.
