Chocolate Casi Amargo

Presented by Gomez/Goldfelder Present
East Rochester, NY

National Show

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: Sì, 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.
