Adelaide Mestre

TOP DRAWER is writer and performer Adelaide Mestre’s award-winning show about her journey to Cuba to seek out her deceased father’s piano left behind when her family fled during the revolution.

The show takes place in both past and present, as the audience follows her on her quest to reclaim her family’s heritage. In flashbacks, she chronicles her life growing up on Manhattan’s Upper East Side with her mother, a thrice married, opera-singing socialite with impossible top-drawer standards and her father, a gay, manic-depressive concert pianist.

In story and song, she shares about her parents doomed love affair, her father’s struggle with his homosexuality, and his eventual tragic suicide. With sentiment and humour she she spins a tale dysfunction and redemption and, ultimately, shares her discovery that art can be a kind of alchemy that transmutes loss and abandonment into freedom.

Top Drawer will make you laugh, cry and maybe even… sing.
