THE COLUMBUS PLAY by Daniella De Jesús
THE COLUMBUS PLAY is a darkly comedic re-imagining of Christopher Columbus' initial arrival in the Caribbean from the point of view of the Taino/Lukku Cairi people (or "The Natives"), weaving together history, Taino folklore, and contemporary dialogues about racism, fetishization, immigration and gentrification.
