Update: this role was transformed and cast.
Theatre Makers is seeking an actor for the role of Francisco, a young-to-middle-aged Latino male socialist who is in love with Anna, another character in the “20/20” play.
Synopsis: It’s 2020. The President has been re-elected, the climate is heating up, the economy in meltdown. In this satirical participatory performance, audience members choose the scenarios to stage: impeachment? a coup? a revolution? “20/20” asks what people power looks like in a time of vast uncertainty when even choosing to do nothing has consequences.
