Yell Rebel is currently accepting submissions for its production of "Agency", opening in November 2016, directed by Megan Watson. We are seeking an actor for the role of Peter.
PETER (25-35): idealistic, radical, new father in East Berlin in the 1980s. Suffers severe psychological torture at the hands of the Stasi.
Experience with working on new scripts is an asset.
“Agency”, a new play by Eva Barrie, takes place in 1980’s Divided Berlin and present-day Berlin. In 1986, 3-year-old Hannah and her parents escape to West Berlin through a tunnel, but her father, Peter, vanishes during the escape. Twenty-six years later, Hannah accesses her father’s Stasi-file (Stasi: [colloquial] East German Secret Police). In the files she learns that her father's best friend, Thomas, was the Stasi-Informant who had been spying on her father.
Hannah hunts down Thomas and finds him in his dilapidated travel agency. She interrogates him in order to uncover the mystery of her father's disappearance.
Though set in Berlin, “Agency” is a universal meditation on how loneliness drives human-beings and the walls we build around ourselves.
Rehearsal Dates: begin Oct. 24th – Nov. 9th, 2016
Performance Dates: Nov. 10th-20th at the Theatre Centre (Incubator Space)
Agency would not be possible without generous support from the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
