CHOCOLATE CASI AMARGO AT 2019 TAMPA INTERNATIONAL FRINGE FESTIVAL. Delicious sexy hot chocolate almost bitter will be served MAY 2019 in YBOR CITY.

Elena Goldfeder and Ruben Gomez from Rochester NY will perform in the 2019 TAMPA INTERNATIONAL Fringe Festival (MAY 3-11). Candide Carrasco’s new play, CHOCOLATE CASI AMARGO (CHOCOLATE ALMOST BITTER), is a bittersweet, hysterical romp through homophobia and conservatism in the Latino community. After an evening out with “good” friends, an older Cuban couple confronts their past, their present, the boredom of everyday life, the decline of aging and – most of all – their only child’s gay lifestyle. In both English and Spanish, this play is suitable for mature audiences.

PACO: So from now on all the gay kids in the universe are your kids?

ISABEL: Sí, that is the way it is, and it is going to be, they are all my kids as long that there are people who laugh at them, and throw stone, and kill them, there are too many mothers of gay kids who checked out ,we are needed, las que se quedan y luchan.

As Hitler rose to power he drew into his movement young men known as Hitler Youth who were dedicated to supporting the goals of Hitler and following his every command. Some of these teenagers volunteered to join while others were forced into membership, but once in, they had to declare their loyalty to all of Hitler’s plans, including his goal to rid Germany of undesirable people in order to create a master race free of persons with mental or physical disabilities or members of ethnic groups considered inferior to the pure Aryan race. Viktor, forced to join the Hitler Youth, faces a terrible dilemma because his own twin sister is housed in an asylum for the mentally disabled and is marked for death. Viktor not only fears what might become of his sister, but knows that he too will be doomed because of his genetic relationship. In his efforts to keep this secret from other vicious Hitler Youths, Viktor struggles to be true to himself and defy what he sees as a wave of evil that is sweeping his country.

Can you place a value on the stuff you’ve surrounded yourself with? Will the trinkets, treasures and ephemera accumulated over a lifetime have any meaning after you’re gone? How strong is their hold on you? And when you’re no longer here, will they somehow retain the power of the emotions, stories, and energy invested in them? A desperate widow on the edge of dissolution discovers the market value of memories.
