Breakdown

EYES FOR CONSUELA depicts the mid-life crisis of Henry, a lost American soul, as he wanders the dreamlike world of a remote Mexican jungle. Estranged from his wife, Henry escapes to Mexico to “find himself” instead encountering a Mexican bandit who wants to cut out his eyes. According to Amado, blue eyes are the only thing that will make his lover Consuela smile. Henry insists his eyes are brown. In a fierce battle of wills, Henry and Amado come eye to eye with their inner demons, the true nature of sacrifice and what separates them from the women they love.

Seeking:

Henry:
(late 40s-50s) Caucasian. An ordinary American businessman in the midst of a mid-life crisis. Left his family in snowy Michigan for sunny Mexico to “find himself.” Neat, practical, rational and in good physical shape, yet unraveling from the deterioration of his marriage. Sensitive, vulnerable, yet with a fighting spirit. A man at “the end of his rope.” Partial nudity—appears briefly in boxer shorts and no shirt.

Viejo:
(50s-70s) Hispanic. A wizened, weathered Mexican innkeeper. Insightful, knowledgeable-has seen it all. Consuela’s father. Shot through the eye by Amado. Wears an eye patch. Strong beyond his years. Punctuates the action from his rocking chair. Excellent sense of rhythm.

Consuela:
(20s-30s): Hispanic. A young Mexican girl. Very beautiful. Looks very young, but has a strength and maturity beyond her years. A dancer. Ethereal, fluid. Passionate, expressive -filled with a deep yearning. Can also appear cold and emotionless. Must move well. Dance background/experience preferred.
