Thought For Food is seeking actors for Bearwalker by Genevieve Adam.
This one-act play tells the story of a newly-arrived French soldier caught in the middle of a dangerous feud as a wealthy merchant takes vengeance on his unfaithful wife, her lover, and anyone who stands in his way. Set in 17th-century New France, Bearwalker challenges the traditional colonial narrative by giving a strong voice to Indigenous characters as well as upending our assumptions about the role of women at that time.
We are seeking submissions for the following roles:
Jeanne. Indigenous. Female. 25-35. Strong and stubborn. Trying to forget a dark past.
Madeleine. Open ethnicity. Female. 18-25. Young and willful. Desperate to escape her controlling husband.
The production will run for three weeks in early 2018 in Toronto. Part-time rehearsals will take place in November and December of 2017 in Toronto. Actors will be engaged under the Collective Policy.
Please submit a headshot and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions deadline is Friday, September 15th. Auditions will be held in late September.
