How do you mend a family when a Mother’s Severed Head has come between them?  

Mourning the loss of a matriarch is hard enough without her head sitting on the kitchen table talking to you every day. This peculiar situation is a reality for Robert, a wannabe playwright stuck in the family business after the untimely decapitation of his mother. As Robert and his father go at each other’s throats, Mama plots the best way to reunite with the rest of her body. The familial dysfunction crescendos to the point where Mama isn’t the only one losing her head.  



GUITARIST: Male, Female, or Gender non-conforming. Any age. Latinx. This Actor/Musician will play Latin-guitar music on stage throughout the play, providing ambience. Ability to freestyle/riff is required.


What to prepare 

Please submit via email a headshot/resume as well as a 30-45 second video showcasing your guitar playing skills. Latin-guitar music strongly encouraged.
