Pride Arts
one in two

Pay: Stipend


PrideArts is accepting video submissions for their upcoming production of one in two, by Donja R. Love and directed by Jordan Ratliff.

Three Black queer men sit in an ethereal waiting room. One is about to be chosen to live the unforgiving story of a man diagnosed with HIV, struggling to be defined by more than his status. Unable to decide for themselves, the three men decide to let the audience choose who will play which role. Ten years after his own diagnosis, Donja R. Love has written a fearless account of the reality for too many Americans. A deeply personal call to action, one in two shines a light on the people behind a statistic and the strength of the community they make up.

PERSON ON THE LEFT - Black, male, 20s/30s
PERSON IN THE MIDDLE - Black, male, 20s/30s
PERSON ON THE RIGHT - Black, male, 20s/30s

**Important Notes**
The audience will choose every night who plays which role, therefore each actor is expected to learn the track of every role.
This play contains depictions of suicide, partial nudity, and black trauma. An Intimacy Director will be hired.

Stipend: $550
