Fire Exit Theatre is seeking actors for their March production of Fresh Hell
Written by Conni Massing
Directed by Jeany Van Meltebeke Snider
SYNOPSIS: An unlikely encounter between Joan of Arc and American writer Dorothy Parker – one a renowned warrior saint, the other a suicidal brilliant writer. Grappling with their own mortality, these two wrangle about the nature of faith, calling, and the meaning of life, proving themselves unlikely angels in the purgatory of Doubt.
We will be auditioning for the following roles:
Joan: A young, ambitious French woman with a zeal for God. Sensitive to truth, assertive, smart and courageous. Often speaks French.
Dorothy: A cynical, middle-aged 20th century writer. Skeptical, witty, sardonic and prone to alcohol and despair.
We are proposing a condensed rehearsal schedule between February 13th-March 4th.
Tech rehearsals: March 5th-8th, 2022
Six performances: March 9th-13th, 2022
Venue: The Engineered Air Theatre, Calgary.
What to expect:
You will be given sides to prepare.
There may be some shuffling of pairings, so be prepared to linger for up to an hour.
When: Saturday September 11 between 1 and 5pm, one hour call times
Where: Renfrew Baptist Church – 1204 Renfrew Dr. NE.
