Audition Info

Self-ish by Cecilia Alexander and Caetano Capurro

‘Emotionally Unavailable’ Brian(na)* is miserable after their ex dumps them, saying they don’t know how to feel.

Twenty Twenty One by Charlotte Cox
5th May 2021

Do you trust the government to tell you everything? Do you feel as though you are being watched, even in the comfort of your own home?

Dystopias concerned themselves with the future, and we are that future. Watch Alex Bradbury tackle modern-day privacy issues in his latest episode of ‘Brave New World’, as he uncovers the truth about yet another exposed corporate lie. NDAs and Confidentiality Clauses can only hide the truth to an extent, and as Alex ventures deeper into the issue of the new TJE phone update, they discover that all is not as discussed in the media, nor released to the public. What has been framed to be a step forward in personal security and privacy measures for all Iphone users, reveals a far more suspicious story concerning contracted data protection leaks in collusion with the government.

Callbacks

On the evening of Friday 19th February, a callbacks list will be released onto the Facebook page. Please consult this and note down when you have been called back and for which show. Callbacks are held on Saturday 20th February throughout the day. You should let us know when you audition if you are not available for any portion of this day.

You may be called back twice for the same show but you should not be called back for different shows at the same time. If you have been double booked please get in contact with Jake Levy, In-House Coordinator or Jack Titley, Fringe Coordinator immediately as this would be a mistake.

You may still be cast even if you are not called back so please stay by your phone on the Sunday regardless.

Callbacks will be conducted in 30 minute slots via Zoom (videoconferencing service). Please download Zoom prior to Saturday and ensure punctuality. If you are concerned about being able to use Zoom, please contact Cecilia Alexander, Technical Manager.

Casting

On Sunday 21st February a casting meeting will take place.

We cast parts by working through shows one at a time. We will flip a coin to determine which parts we start with (M, F, GN) and work through them one at a time. We will be posting on our Facebook page throughout the day to keep you up to date with progress.

This is a lengthy process so please stay by your phone all day. If a team wants to cast you, you will receive a phone call. If you do not answer we will keep trying to contact you, but after 15 minutes will need to move on. If you do not answer within that grace period, you may miss your opportunity to be cast.

You may be offered multiple parts but you are only able to accept one part. Please take time after auditions / callbacks to consider which shows you would prefer to be in, to save time if you are offered numerous roles.

Good luck!
