Program:  Bayamesa” by Abel Gonzalez Melo.  Performed in Spanish with English Supertitles. A theatre company comes across unpublished manuscripts of the poet María Luisa Milanés (1893-1919), an ardent feminist and patriot born in Bayamo, Cuba, and undertakes to put on a play based on her complicated life, thereby discovering the fascinating story of a dangerous clash with patriarchal tyranny in the process.

The Playwright, Abel Gonzalez Melo, will attend the opening night – January 30 – performance.  There will be a Bacardi reception at the theatre on that evening from 6:30 PM to 8:15 PM.  All FAN attendees are invited to the reception.

Teatro Avante premiered “Bayamesa” at the 34th Miami International Hispanic Theatre Festival in summer 2019 and presents it again to a Miami-wide audience.
