Don’t miss Hamilton’s only performance of Hemingway's HOT Havana. All funds raised from this exciting performance will go to the Cuba for Haiti Campaign, which supports the important work of the Cuban medical relief workers in Haiti.
Hemingway's HOT Havana is a thoroughly entertaining play, which offers rare insight into the life and times of Ernest Hemingway, his time spent in Cuba and why he so loved the old city. It is a bold, rousing adventure tale brought to life by actor, director and master story-teller Brian Gordon Sinclair. Hemingway’s HOT Havana is a superb one actor show that will make you believe Hemingway is standing right there in front of you!

About Cuban Medical Relief in Haiti
At the time of the earthquake in Haiti, 402 Cuban internationalists, 302 of them medical personnel, were already on the ground in Haiti providing free medical services. These, together with many of the 500 Haitian doctors who had been trained in Cuba free of charge formed the essential early group of lifesavers, attending to 1,102 Haitian patients in the first 24 hours after the earthquake. They have continued their work, boosted by an additional medical brigade which arrived promptly from Cuba. The Cubans do this work in Haiti purely in the spirit of helping their fellow human beings, without condition or expectation. All monies raised for the Cuba for Haiti Campaign goes directly to the relief and training efforts in Haiti. We believe that this kind of unprecedented and invaluable help which Cuba has been giving Haiti for twelve years deserves to be supported as strongly as possible! Join us to make this important work a success!
