In a time when we are distanced, how do we create connections?

Letters from Cuba is a dance of desire between past and present. It flows back and forth between a brother in Cuba and a sister in New York City, yearning to be in the same place at the same time. With this play, María Irene Fornés questions: how do we reach for stability in a world where we are constantly being thrown off balance?  A question that each one of us had to answer during the pandemic.
