Hamilton_Fringe_BLK Logo_smRise_Of_The_Prickly_PearJuly 18 to 27, 2014. RED BETTY THEATRE and Hamilton Fringe Festival present Rise Of The Prickly Pear, a new play by Radha S Menon, directed by Tony Sciara, featuring Nathan Bigec, Carla Garcia, Tamara Kamermans.
“Beauty’s a fickle mistress who tolerates nothing from her lover Old Man Time”
From the same team as last summer’s fringe hit show Ghost Train Riders and winner of View Magazine’s Best Of Theatre 2013, Radha S Menon’s steamy new play Rise Of The Prickly Pear will have you on the edge of your seat. Set in 1958 Santiago De Cuba, Che Guevara and his ‘bearded ones’ are holed up in the Sierra Maestra fighting bitterly as revolution grips the nation in a dire struggle against imperialism. Rise Of The Prickly Pear is a story of forbidden love–? lost and found. Two women, three men and a prickly pear… in a comical wrangle for love and lust. Who can avoid slivers as they bite their way to the top? Who will be consumed?
