Two Souls and a Promise AND Crossing the Río
by Teatro Vivo

Jun. 15 - Jun. 16 (2015)

Teatro Vivo is auditioning for 2 one act plays written by Rupert Reyes and directed by Rob Rowland to be performed in late August 2015.


2 Souls and a Promise is a bilingual comedy about two young lovers who make a promise to keep their souls united for eternity. What they didn't take into account was that they were not destined to die at the same time, which brings interesting results. It’s a promise, una promisa, which comes true in a way that neither would have ever anticipated. Be careful about the promises you make, keeping them can be tricky!


Crossing the Rio is a bilingual comedy about, a new officer in the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) branch of Homeland Security, Jarett Acosta, who is on probation for his job. To complicate things, his superior officer is actually his own overbearing father. Will he make his probation? His true test will not lie with how well he does his job but how well he doesn't when the love of his life attempts to across the border illegally. Faced with this situation, will he have to cross his own personal river to save her?
