Play script (English)

A Jewish-Cuban young man sets out to recover memories of the S.S. St. Louis, which in 1939, left Nazi Germany for Cuba filled with Jewish refugees but was turned back by Cuba, the U.S. and Canada. He seeks out a prominent, elderly, German-born woman novelist who, in her youth, loved a Jewish man who was a passenger to Cuba on the ship. In this play of obsession and despair, Cruz lures three characters into a sea of darkness so they can find a unity of souls through their relationship with history and literature.
