Calling all Lady and Trans* Actors!

Open auditions will be held on Friday the 6th of March in the Fringe Lab, Temple Bar, for anyone interested in performing at Lady and Trans* Fest Dublin 2015.
This is a not-for-profit festival and as such there is no payment involved.

We will be putting on two short plays:

– A 20-30 minute piece about consent and rape culture, using an ensemble of about 5-7 actors. This will be devised by the ensemble.

– A  10-15 minute piece entitled “Una Buena Vista”. This piece is already scripted (but open to change during rehearsals!) and is a comedy. There are three characters.

The audition is in the form of a workshop which will run from 4-6pm on Friday 6th March, Fringe Lab.  There is no need to prepare anything, just come ready to play!

Rehearsals (for both) will be on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in April (with some flexibility) and both pieces will be performed on the 9th of May.

If you are interested in taking part in the workshop send an email with a little bit about yourself and why you want to get involved to
