It's 1961. Fidel has turned Havana upside down. Veronica's family has fled the country, leaving her behind to find a new family. Pregnant and ready to participate in whatever Fidel throws her way, she is not fully prepared for everything the revolution has in store. ILLUMINATING VERONICA is a play about betrayal and hope that looks at Castro's Cuba, not as a demonic state, nor as a perfect paradise, but as a work in progress.
