The Real James Bond Was Dominican
Written & Performed by Christopher Rivas
Regional Premiere
May 17 – 19, 2019

What happens when a Dominican boy in Queens—with an imagination far beyond his shell, who won’t go anywhere without his nerf gun and is obsessed with James Bond—finds out that the real  James Bond was Dominican? This is a true story about Porfirio Rubirosa, Ian Fleming’s inspiration for Bond and how this discovery set off a whole tragi-comic journey for a young, Dominican actor-to-be. The Real James Bond Was Dominican is a young man’s guide to love, sex, color, code-switching, white-washing, success, fake-it-till-you-make-it, and the roller coaster of finding one’s true self. Directed by Daniel Banks.

This performance was made possible in part by Ignite Arts Dallas.
