IN ''The Modern Ladies of Guanabacoa,'' which opened last night at the Ensemble Studio Theater, the playwright Eduardo Machado wants to show us just how Cuba was dragged kicking and screaming into the 20th century. Though his work is intimate in scale, the tale it implicitly tells is of epic historical dimensions, involving sweeping political, economic, social and religious change. There's probably enough potential material here for a dozen plays, and, as it happens, at least two of them seem to be uneasily jammed, one per act, into ''Modern Ladies.

Includes The Modern Ladies of Guanabacoa, Fabiola, In the Eye of the Hurricane and Broken Eggs. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.
