Mario is a hard working auto mechanic in east L.A. who is left to raise his son, JJ, after the passing of his mother. In order to honor her memory and cope with his lack of connection with his father, JJ begins to build an arcade out of leftover cardboard from his dad’s garage.

It is through JJ’s imagination and ingenuity that he is able to connect to himself and his family. Inspired by the YouTube sensation, Caine’s Arcade, this bilingual play celebrates culture, imagination, perseverance, and family.

JJ's Arcade will be co-produced with Teatro Vivo and presented at the Mexican American Cultural Center.
