This is the opening scene of the play. We meet Nino and his son,
Nino approaches his window.
NINO SERGIO! SERGIO! Come here for a sec. GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE! Come on up. I got some things I need you to get. NO! NOT LATER, CARAJO! NOW! Christ with this damn kid...
Nino plays music.
ESO! THERE YOU GO!
SERGIO ANTONIO ORTIZ, a chubby young man in his twenties, enters: disheveled manner, ragged jeans, untucked shirt, worn-out sneakers, loads of gel in his hair... He carries a folded piece of paper in his back pocket. He watches Nino for a moment then turns off the music.
SERGIO Hey, pop. NINO Who said you could turn off my music? SERGIO I said hey, pop. NINO You the one payin’ rent? SERGIO The whole neighborhood hears you screaming like a lunatic. NINO Then let them hear. (Shouting out of the window) I’M CELEBRATING LIFE, GOD DAMN IT!
