Nina (powerful-voiced Cheyenne Wells), a prize student who’s the pride of the barrio as the one who got out, comes home feeling defeated and ashamed, having lost her scholarship and dropped out of Stanford. She doesn’t know how to break it to her overprotective dad (a stubborn and touchingly tormented Joshua A Gonzales) and no-nonsense mom (warm and grounded Sheila Viramontes). Nina also has a budding romance with her dad’s employee Benny (infectiously exuberant Marcel Saunders), the only non-Latino guy in the play, which also promises to be a touchy subject to bring up to the parents.

Rules were strict, Baker said. At one point, the inmates weren’t even allowed to talk to each other, he said, though the warden ultimately relented. There was no free movement. And, inmates were kept to their solitary cells most of the time, he said. He thought about escaping, as he had done at prisons in the past. From his second-floor cell, he could catch just a glimpse of the bay water glimmering in the sun. But the sight grew increasingly sour as his hopes for freedom dimmed, he said. “It was exciting for a minute, but as time goes by, the water is no friend of ours,” Baker said. “The water is the wall that kept us here, and it became very ugly over time.”.

The pent-up energy that fueled all this revelry had a darker side. For many of the actors, particularly those working long night shoots on grim streets, production was both physically and spiritually exhausting. Royo found it especially difficult to play the sharp-eyed junkie, Bubbles. Royo’s father had owned a Harlem clothing store, and he had taken special pride in his appearance, showing up for school in wing tips and double-breasted suits. He knew that the sight of him in filthy junkie gear caused his parents particular heartache — not just on sartorial grounds but because it was the type of role black actors were all too accustomed to finding as their only options. At his audition, in front of Simon and producers Clark Johnson, and Robert Colesberry, Royo voiced his concerns that Bubbles not be just another clichÃ©d black junkie. “They just looked at me and were like, ‘Oh, you don’t know how we get down.'”.
