About Becoming Cuba

In 1897 Cuba on the eve of the Spanish-American War, spirited widow Adela runs a pharmacy, indifferent to the mounting conflict around her. But when the rebellion comes home to Havana, she must choose between loyalty to country or to family. By turns funny, steamy, and political, this powerful new drama from Playwright-in-Residence Melinda Lopez (Sonia Flew)  asks whether freedom is something we all want. Huntington Associate Producer M. Bevin O’Gara directs. 

"Since I arrived at the Huntington, people have asked when we would stage another new play by Melinda Lopez. Becoming Cuba is exuberant, passionate, and well worth the wait. It’s an incredible way to kick off Melinda’s new position as the Huntington’s playwright-in-residence."— Peter DuBois
Becoming Cuba takes me back to my favorite theatrical territory – mining big stories rooted in a shared history of the US and Cuba. I am thrilled to be returning to the Huntington, my artistic home, and I am especially excited to again work with Director M. Bevin O’Gara. Bevin understands my sensibility and my humor, and I trust her to wring the most and the best from my work. We are a terrific team.”— Melinda Lopez

  • Playwright Seeks To Tell Story Not Effect Change

    From The Coast News, June 7, 2013: "If the North Coast Repertory Theatre had had a curtain, playwright Melinda Lopez would have been a bundle of nerves before it went up. Speaking from her home in Boston, where she teaches theater and performance at Wellesley College and playwriting at Boston University, Lopez said that she was excited about her play Becoming Cuba taking stage for the first time. . . .
