Strawdog Theatre Company announces auditions for THIRST by C.A. Johnson, directed by Andrea J. Dymond.
Samira and Greta lead a peaceful life. They have their own clearing in the woods, their own hut, and their son Kalil to keep them laughing. When Kalil returns home without their water rations, they find themselves in dangerous conflict with their local political leader. Set in a tense, segregated society, THIRST is a complex look at family and love in war-time.
We encourage performers of all sizes, genders, and abilities to submit.
Seeking non-AEA actors to play the following roles:
KALIL: Black M, 9-11 years old. Samira and Greta's found son. He's curious and he never forgets a good story.
TERRANCE: Black M, 30's-40's. The local militia leader. A loner nursing a broken heart and a mighty rage. Samira's ex-husband. UNDERSTUDY ONLY
