BREAKDOWN

Jose Quijano/Don Quixote: Male, Latinx, late 50’s-60s. Quijano is a former professor whose brilliant mind is withering away with age. He believes he is Don Quixote on a hero’s journey to reunite with his love Dulcinea, a quest that seems misguided to others. He is wise, proud, charismatic, theatrical, and hiding a painful past.
Manny Diaz/Sancho Panza: Male, Latinx, 30s-40s. Manny is a paleta (popsicle) vendor. In Quijano’s fantasy he plays Quixote’s righthand man Sancho Panza. This is a part Manny is game to play, if only to keep an eye on his friend. He is funny, all heart, and knows more than he lets on.
Papa Calaca/Ensemble: Male, Latinx, 30s-40s. Papa Calaca or Papa Muerte is leader of the Calacas (skeletons) here to usher in the end Quijano’s time on earth. A troubadour of sorts.
Dulcinea/Dr. Campos/Ensemble: Female, Latinx, 30s-40s. The woman of Quijano’s dreams who appears as an apparition, pushing him forward on his quest to find her. She is his first love, and his one true love.
Bruno Castillo/Young Quijano/Ensemble: Latinx, 30s-40s. Bruno is the bartender and co-owner of Rosario’s Lounge and Karaoke, the local bar. He is a man with unwavering authority, gusto, and a great sense of humor. He keeps the severed finger of Pancho Villa as a souvenir in a jar.
Antonia/Inez/Ensemble: Female, Latinx, 20s-30s. Antonia is Quijano’s dutiful niece and Magdalena’s daughter. She is determined to take care of her uncle all by herself, and fights against her mother’s wishes to send him to a nursing home. She is compassionate and intelligent, but in a little over her head when it comes to her uncle.
Magdalena/Perla/Ensemble: Female, Latinx, 50s. Magdalena is Quijano’s younger sister. She took him in when his health began to deteriorate but has since grown resentful of her brother and the extra stress he brings on the family house. She is exhausted and out of options.
Juana/Rosario Castillo/Ensemble: Female, Latinx, 30s-40s. Juana is Manny’s wife and the mother of their children. She is sassy and pragmatic. She is not happy about Manny’s current expedition and promises that whatever trouble he might get himself into won’t compare to the trouble he is in at home.
Padre Perez /Cardenio/Ensemble: Male, Latinx, 50s. A man of God. Close to the family and close to the community. Humble and compassionate, but not much tolerance for the demons he thinks possess Quijano.
