Dir. Samuel James Wilson
Produced by Theatre In Exile
Presented by D’Arcy Symposium
In Caryl Churchill’s quixotic, fragmented two-hander, a guy named Guy falls in love with American Sam, and leaves behind his wife and children to join in an adventure that is as seductive as it is dangerous.
Theatre In Exile’s experiment with Churchill’s text is a one-night engagement presented by community arts event D’Arcy Symposium, to be performed Saturday, September 29, 2018. Theatre In Exile is keeping the option open for a longer run of the piece in 2019.
The company is currently seeking one (1) male or male expressing person to fill the role of GUY. Applicants of all ethnicities and orientations are encouraged to apply.
Persons auditioning are expected to prepare a short contemporary monologue, and speak to their experience with the selected text.
Auditions will take place August 14th and 15th, and 17th, at 15 D’Arcy Street. Time slots from 10am to 4pm are available. If a person wishes to audition but works a 9am to 5pm schedule, please let us know and we can work something out. Rehearsals will begin September 7th, and scheduled according to the time constraints of the actors, the director and the stage manager.
All inquiries may be sent to director Samuel James Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Theatre In Exile is a theatre collective founded in 2012 by artist Samuel James Wilson in Brooklyn, NY. The company has focused primarily on political, highly aesthetic theatre that explores devised work, as well as contemporary and classical texts and forms. Their works include The Big Mzungu of Kilwa Kivinje (2012), Harold Pinter’s Mountain Language (2015), and the ongoing, episodic work Watermelon Sky: for Annie L. Burton (2016, 2018) created and devised by Samuel James Wilson and frequent collaborator Jenel Molière. Theatre In Exile moved its roots from Brooklyn to Toronto in September 2017, and is now a resident company of the D’Arcy Symposium.
D’Arcy Symposium is a community arts event and party co-curated by Ryan Faubert and Samuel James Wilson . The event incorporates a wide range of artistic works – from bands, to visual and installation art, performance art, dance and theatre in a beautiful, 120 year old home in the heart of Baldwin Village. D’Arcy Symposium’s first show was on May 26.
