Bocón!
Bocón!
Comedy/Drama. By Lisa Loomer.

Cast: 6 actors, with doubling; Flexible. ¡Bocón!, a fable filled with humor and mysticism and song, tells the story of twelve-year-old Miguel who flees a repressive military regime in Central America for Los Angeles. A natural storyteller and irrepressible "big mouth" or bocón, Miguel loses his voice when his parents are taken and begins a metaphorical journey north to the City of Angels. Along the way he meets up with an unusual traveling companion, La Llorona, the legendary "Weeping Woman" of Mexican and Central American mythology. Through their magical friendship, Miguel finds his voice and the courage to cross the border to a new life. Miguel's story is relevant to immigrant children from all parts of the world … and to any child who is learning the many meanings of finding one's own "voice." A live musician usually accompanies the piece. One flexible set. Approximate running time: 55 minutes.

Notes
MUSIC ~ The original production had a lot of taped music with a distinctly Latin feel. There was a live musician with a variety of ethnic and percussion instruments underscoring and accenting moments throughout the play. Public Domain or original music may be used to for these purposes.
