Two sisters are appearing on an HGTV-style reality show to sell their family home, hoping to capitalize on the gentrification in their “changing neighborhood.” As they perform for the camera, the show starts to slip into the surreal: one sister grapples with turmoil in the family’s ancestral past, and the other learns how much she’s willing to sacrifice for the family’s future. What is the cultural cost of progress in America? And is cashing in always selling out?
PATRICIA: Woman. Late 30’s, Latinx. She's practical to the core, and a natural caretaker – but often resentful of that role. She believes money brings dignity, security, meaning. Julia’s older sister, with a distinct Older Sister Complex. Lived in the house for over a year taking care of their ailing mother. Accountant by day.
JULIA: Woman. Late 20’s, Latinx. Very sentimental. She believes culture brings dignity, security, meaning. Patricia’s younger sister, six months pregnant. Hasn’t lived in the house since she left for college and is recently reclaiming her heritage in preparation for motherhood. Elementary school history teacher by day.
TESSA: Woman. Early 30’s, white. A bubblegum pink pep-princess. Very genial and well- meaning, dreams of making documentaries. Real Estate agent and TV Host who Produces Flip It and List It. Controls the reality show, and everything within it. She genuinely wants to help the Sisters, and using the show to get them the biggest payout possible is her understanding of what they need.
Cinnabar Theater prohibits discrimination. We are committed to diversity and encourage all actors to engage in a policy of equal employment opportunity designed to promote a positive model of inclusion. As such, we encourage performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to submit.
