Daughter of a Cuban Revolutionary


“She hooks us emotionally at the outset, and we’re right with her for the rest of her journey of self-discovery.”

— Los Angeles Times

Remembrance of Forgotten Stories of Cuba's Revolution

Daughter of a Cuban Revolutionary presents the astonishing tale of three towering figures in the life of versatile performer Marissa Chibas. As she recalls her father, Raúl Chibás (who co-wrote the manifesto for the Cuban revolution with Fidel Castro), her uncle, Eddy Chibas (who was the frontrunner for the Cuban presidency in 1951), and her mother, Dalia Chibas (Miss Cuba runner-up in 1959), Daughter unfolds into an impassioned, live-wire performance propelled by Chibas’ magnetic presence and storytelling. This solo tour de force illuminates the intersection of the personal and historical through her own stories and key episodes in the history of her illustrious family.
