I Am Going to Die Alone and I Am Not Afraid is a devised punk play exploring ancestral trauma, the fight against fascism, and exceptional acts of bravery. Told through the story of Francesca Mann, a polish ballerina who stole a Nazi officer's gun while being taken to the gas chambers, and other women who both died in and survived the holocaust, ...and I Am Not Afraid asks the question: how do you fight for the people who will come after you?
Pay: Minimum stipend of $250 guaranteed.
Prop Thtr believes that actors should be valued as much as any other artist working on a theatre production. Therefore, Prop Thtr has developed a model where every artist on our production is paid the same. In order to do this, every artist on every show commits to 3 marketing duties over the course of the run. Each artist will make a base stipend + a percentage of ticket sales. The range of pay is between $250 - $500 per artist.
