FAKE by Carmen Pelaez Presented by Miami New Drama

Miami New Drama is proud to announce the world premiere of FAKE, a new play written by and starring Cuban-American, Carmen Pelaez. In a time in which we’ve come to experience the manipulation of facts to the point of extreme skepticism and distrust, this play encapsulates the themes of the moment.

The daring play thrusts us into the realm of high stakes art dealing, Cuban politics, and a thrilling pursuit for the truth surrounding renowned Cuban avant-garde painter Amelia Pelaez. Amidst cut-throat competition at a prestigious auction house, a mysteriously sourced painting is brought in as a last minute inclusion for sale. The authenticity of the painting is challenged, igniting a search through intriguing layers of complex characters and political bureaucracy.
