audition notice - AMERICAN PASTORELA: THE ROAD TO IMPEACHMENT - New Carpa Theater Company - July 31
Bato Hernandez gets a Tweet while sitting on his porch in Altar, Sonora. Congress is launching impeachment hearings in D.C. This reminds him that he met a guy named Sergei at a bar months earlier who handed him a flash drive, saying only, "Study this. It’s about our cray cray friend in America," before disappearing into the crowd. Bato pops the flash drive into his laptop and discovers smoking-gun evidence implicating Trump in a slew of crimes, none of which involve pee pee in Russia. “Familia Hernandez,” Bato shouts, “we’re going to Washington!” Comedy ensues. We’re not kidding. En serio.
