The play is the story of Guevara's last night before his death in Bolivia, where he spent the final year of his life trying to foment a communist uprising. The Argentine guerrilla, a key figure in Cuba's revolution, was captured by government troops and held in a village schoolhouse while the Bolivian and U.S. governments decided his fate.So you ask yourself the question, how does Rivera know what happened during Che's final hour? A school teacher named Julia Cortes, propably back in the day an idealistic young bimbette that was allowed to "spend some time" with the soon to have a whole in the head hero, is the primary source. But wait, how much does she remember...?
"No one knows but her really what happened in that room," Rivera added.So, since no one really knows what really happened, lets make some things up that would help boost the sale of t-shirts. Because one thing is for sure, as succesful a murderer as Che was, he is even better at selling t-shirts.
