The Female Gaze Magazine in partnership with Alphabetti Theatre are looking for 2 women actors to take part in a week of research and development from Monday 9th-Saturday 14th July.
The Female Gaze is a play currently consisting of 10 monologues written by North East women writers which each look at a different woman who has directed, written for, acted in, or written about film from the late 1800s until today. The week of R&D will enable a selection of the monologues to be worked on by director, Karen Traynor, and writer Sarah Gonnet, so that Sarah can then create a script for a full scale production in 2019.
Casting: 1 black woman - playing age of 40+
1 woman - playing age of 40+
One of the two actors must be from a BAME background in order to be truly representative of the content of the monologues (exempt under Schedule 9, part 1 under the Equality Act).
We particularly welcome applications from those who identify as LGBTQ, non-binary, or disabled.
Audition: Saturday 16th June, Dance City (venue is fully accessible)
Rehearsals: Monday 9th - Friday 13th July 2018
Sharing: Saturday 14th July, 6.00pm
Deadline to apply: Friday 7th June midday
