Each night, Jesús is kidnapped by immigration officials and thrown into a cage to await deportation. But each time, he escapes and makes his way back to the city park to be with his dear friend, Isabel, and await the mysterious Godínez even as the pandemic rages throughout the country. Inspired by Samuel Beckett’s iconic Godot play and our country’s anti-immigrant policies, this play explores the meaning—and absurdities—of identity and belonging. “Waiting” is a shorter, pandemic version of the playwright’s full-length play, “Waiting for Godínez.” CASTING: ISABEL: FEMALE, 30-50, Mexican-American/ Mexican Indigenous. AKA Chavalita.

JESÚS: MALE, 30-50; Mexican-American/ Mexican Indigenous. AKA Chuy. Born in El Paso, Texas; the Male-identifying counterpart to Beckett’s Estragon in the Godot play; forgetful, playful, long-suffering but loves to joke, always hungry and tired; same age as Isabel; must be able to speak Spanish fluently. PISO: MALE/ FEMALE, 40-70; Any race/ethnicity/ Male or Female Identifying. The counterpart to Beckett’s Pozzo in the Godot play; pompous, theatrical, loves to hear their own voice, bigger than life; does not need to speak Spanish. AFORTUNADA: FEMALE, 20-35, Female-IdentifyingBIPOC. The counterpart to Beckett’s Lucky in the Godot play; a poet in Act I, a novelist in Act II; comes to life when ordered to orate; eventually gets upper hand; does not need to speak Spanish. CHILD: MALE/FEMALE, 10-15; Mexican-American/ Mexcian Indigenous, Non-Binary. Immigrant from Mexico; the counterpart to Beckett’s Boy in the Godot play; they are boy / girl twins who do not know nor care what their gender is; cautious around adults; must be able to speak a little Spanish, but not extensively.

Pork Filled Productions is dedicated to casting appropriately and are committed to representing our characters and stories truthfully. We seek actors who are Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing who are fluent in ASL; in addition, we seek actors with strong spoken Spanish skills (again, see breakdowns for exact requirements for each character) Pork Filled Productions, in conjunction with Ophelia’s Jump of Claremont, CA presents a staged reading of CJ An ASplanglish Play by Mercedes Floresislas, a tri-lingual play in English, Spanish and ASL. Directed by Ana María Campoy. Southern Californian actors are especially encouraged to audition as they will be considered for the full production of CJ, to be produced by Ophelia’s Jump in November 2021. Carolina Juarez, CJ, is a fifteen-year-old forced to live with her estranged Aunt Yoli and Deaf grandmother G when her mom overdoses again. She has been disconnected from her Mexican heritage and is not interested in getting to know her family including her grandmother who struggles with dementia. During a teenage tantrum, she destroys her grandmother’s childhood toy and the family’s comadre, Ana, conjures up a recipe to intervene as her personal Nahual. Two Aztec deities appear to her to give her a chance to change the direction of her life before it is too late. Pork Filled Productions is the theater offshoot of the long-running sketch comedy group, The Pork Filled Players. Pork Filled Productions grew from a desire to break stereotypes and challenge the expectations of what can be seen in theater. For more information, please visit us at porkfilled.com and facebook.com/porkfilledproductions. To schedule an audition, please email [email protected].
