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.

Tim Mooney, of “Breakneck Hamlet” and “Breakneck Julius Caesar” fame, leaves behind his tales of the distant past, jumping ahead to the looming existential comedy awaiting us all at the tail end of climate change.

From his narrow, lonely bunker, what may be last man on Earth plays out his own theatre of the absurd to the scattered remnants of a vast, empty planet. Realizing there may not be anybody left listening, Tim turns his attention to those corners of the universe that may yet be picking up radio waves, sharing lessons in how NOT to end up like we did! Along the way, he dreams up his own radical collection of “Ten Commandments” for whatever Klingons or Vulcans might still be out there listening! Pathetic and hilarious, “Man Cave” is a rallying cry screaming out into the darkness:

“Al Gore replaced by William H Macy, with a lot more swagger and humor than the former vice president could ever manage!” (Orlando Sentinel)

This is how the world ends: not with a bang, but a few final stabs at last-minute gallows humor. It’s the performance of a lifetime… the one where we all hope the last joke’s not on us…!

Tragicomedy, 1 Hour
