BREAKDOWN
ERICKA:
30s, female, American, Black or Latina. Recently appointed funds manager for a small NGO in Malawi. A former financier who grew up in Brooklyn, Ericka is determined, distrustful, and headstrong to a fault. A pragmatist who believes in the power of logic to change the world.
JACK:
40s, male, American, Caucasian. Civil engineer drilling borewells for a small NGO in Malawi. Having lost a child in his native California, Jack has dedicated himself to saving lives in sub-Saharan Africa. A former punk musician who plays acoustic guitar.
GILBERT:
20's, male, Malawian, Black, straight. Works the early shift at a wholesale florist in Manhattan. A college student new to New York, Gilbert is reserved, even deferential, until pushed too far. An aspiring rapper with a Malawian dialect.
CHAD:
30's, male, American, gay, not Black. Works the early shift at a wholesale florist in Manhattan. A lapsed activist with hipster tendencies, Chad is funny without being bitchy, outrageous but never camp. A big flirt with a very broken heart.
About PIRIRA
Winner: New York Innovative Theatre Award for Outstanding Premiere of a Play
As the African nation Malawi erupts in riots around them, American aid workers Jack and Ericka take shelter in the storage room of a struggling NGO. Half a world away, Malawian student Gilbert and his gay co-worker Chad begin another day in the back room of a Manhattan florist. This powerful new play explores the challenges of international aid across interpersonal borders, and how we bridge seemingly impossible cultural divides.
