The Shattered Glass Project
About the project and the company
written by Spencer Vigil and directed by Alanah Pascual.
ABOUT THE PLAY AND THE PRODUCTION:
Machismo, written by Spencer Vigil and directed by Alanah Pascual, is a story about finding your place within your family and cultural heritage, but what happens when that same culture grows to exclude your authentic self? Machismo is a play in search of truth and understanding within the love a family holds for one another.
This is a an ensemble driven piece that will require cast to collaborate in the rehearsal process–some singing and dancing may also be involved!
Content warnings: Transphobia features heavily in the storyline and in Max’s relationship with their family. Questions about the script may be addressed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange for responses from the director.
CASTING NOTES AND INFORMATION:
The cast of Machismo must be entirely Mexican and/or Latinx. The character of Max must be played by a person who identifies as trans/non-gender conforming.
