About This Show

Feel the heat and infectious vibrations of the Caribbean in this enthralling coming-of-age story by Quiara Alegria Hudes. An up-and-coming voice in the theatre, Hudes weaves a tragicomic journey about a boy, a bottle of coke, and the boat that sails him toward his dreams of the Promised Land. The inclusion of poetry, songs, and movement drawn from Santeria — a religion in which the central deity Yemaya rules over the sea — creates a landscape where the characters and audience move effortlessly between the real and the surreal. Yemaya’s Belly is a tapestry that is at once wonderfully simple and highly complex — you will delight in the exquisite language and striking visual style of this award winning new play. Rick DesRochers directs.
