Rodrigo is a Spanish civil engineer who is struggling to get a job in UK. After many unsuccessful job interviews, he is offered a job he cannot refuse. (back story) The sketch starts with Peter sitting in the office, this would be introduction to the character through his expressions and the way he sits/plays on the computer and so on, and reading the CV or more like discarding it as seeing this guy is Spanish. Rodrigo enters the room and is very polite, greeting Peter and waiting for him to let him sit down. The interview begins here. The sketch ends with Peter submitting Rodrigo for a position, but Rodrigo would receive a great surprise just before the end of sketch. (This will be clear in the script)
Rodrigo Cuadrado [Male] [Age: 35-45] SPANISH ACTOR
He is a Spanish guy with excellent educational background, intellectual but with very strong accent. He is smart in appearance and articulate, has problems with some English sounds such as ‘th’ ‘s’ and ‘sh’ and so on. Some words sound different and need to be understood within the context.
Mr. Peter White [Male] [Age: 25-30]
Peter is a confident and very self-conscious guy. He appears very arrogant as believes that he does not understand a word Rodrigo says. This is only due to the accent and his appearance as foreigner. Peter does not filter his words and often says something inappropriate believing it’s ok to say as Rodrigo probably does not understand him, which is obviously incorrect. Peter would speak directly to audience, commenting on his absurd point of view of Rodrigo.
