Cuba, 1979. Adapted from the Cuban film 'Fresa y Chocolate', the play explores love, learning and friendship and between two men in post-revolutionary Cuba. “Beautifully economic design” (WhatsonStage) “It was hard not to admire the careful way the stage had been set up, hundreds of books piled together… you then feared for its safety at times as the play built to an explosive conclusion.” (Bristol Post) “Intriguingly detailed set design… enabling the clashing ideals to be brought into sharp focus” (The Public Reviews)
