Border

Black Comedy 2M One set Short one act

A hilarious depiction of a smuggler enticing a reluctant young man to cross the border.

Nacho is standing in front of a wall waiting for a passerby. When he sees one, he puts on the charm and attempts to convince the passerby there is much to be found on the other side of the wall for just one dollar. Estefan is not interested, but that doesn’t stop Nacho. He uses every tactic until he gets Estefan interested to ‘go to the other side.’ Finally, Estefan pays his dollar and crawls through the hole to get to the other side. Then fate comes in.

Presented at the Oregon Bilingual Conference in Bend, Oregon 1997, Produced by Aguijon II Theater company (1992)
