U.S. Premiere happens at California/Mexico border and Ventura

eXtras features Bruno and brother Odiseo, stars of Mexican stage and cinema.

eXtras is an adaptation of Stones in His Pockets by Marie Jones, which won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and received three Tony Award nominations. In this new version by noted author, media personality and filmmaker Sabina Berman (four-time winner of Mexico’s National Playwriting Award), the locale has been shifted to a California/Mexico border town. When a Hollywood film company arrives to shoot a major motion picture, the villagers, including undocumented immigrants, see it as a chance to make their dreams come true.

The American debut of Mexico-based director Bruno Bichir (Ariel Award-winner), the production features Bruno and brother Odiseo, both stars of Mexican stage and cinema. The two play more than 15 funny, flawed characters – the director, the starlet, crew members, villagers, even cows. Filled with humor, wit, romance and pathos, this American premiere asks what it takes for us to play a leading role in fulfilling our own destiny. Come early and enjoy music composed and performed by 17-year-old rising music star Maya Burns and special guests – a mix of Ranchero, Corrido and Mexican Surfer Rock. The concert starts 30 minutes before curtain!
