Young playwright Yasmar Cruz, presented in Barco de Papel his theater work Mirror in New York (El espejo en Nueva York) on November 1 2013.
El Espejo en Nueva York explores the subconscient mind of a woman who took extreme measures to confront her abandonment and solicitude. Her motives, her doubts and internal frustrations and the way she decides to confront her decisions. After the reading there was a conference with the director, actors and the playwright.
This activity was realized with the aim of promoting her campaign in one website where she started a donation fund for the expenses of her trip to Cuba (www.gofundme.com/4i7r6s), where she was invited to participate in an international festival that promotes the work of young playwrights.
