3 Disabled Actors and 1 Non-Disabled Actor Wanted For Rehearsed Reading
Occupation is a new play by Pauline Heath which will be presented at ARC Stockton as a rehearsed reading on 1 October 2015.
This new hard-hitting play is showing how people and families have been affected by austerity. And how it affects everybody, not just minorities. People who would never before have dreamed of attending a rally, are now gathering to speak out. What would make you protest? What would you protest about? This piece is taken from the real life experiences of disabled people near you.
1 female actor, playing age 40-50 years to play Parent
1 male disabled actor, playing age 45-50 years to play Ex-Soldier
1 male disabled actor, playing age 18-22 years to play Young Person
1 female disabled actor, playing age 35-50 years to play Professional
Each actor will multi-role, but will have one main character to play.
There will be five days of rehearsals in Stockton-On-Tees, 27 September – 1 October, including a public reading on 1 October 2015. Actors must be available for all rehearsals and performance.
