    At the 2018 Samuel French festival, I saw this short one-woman monologue about her fight against one of history's worse hurricanes while also dealing with the damages it left behind. She was fearless, honest, vulnerable and even more importantly so, hopeful. Diaz-Marcano won't let the world forget about Puerto Rico.

    A powerhouse of a monologue! I was most struck with the magic of the piece, and the lyric nature of the language. The heart beating toward the end brought me to tears. All and all, a great piece for an actor to sink their teeth into, and to move an audience with. Well done!

    Such a beautiful ode to a homeland that's seen such destruction . Such power of words that strike at the heart of the reader. The last scene is achingly beautiful where Rocio hears the beating heart of the island once again. Thank you for sharing this.
