Theatre Director needed

I'm looking for a Director for my new show, Ephemory, for a fall production. This is a play about memory, legacy, family and love. Ruth helps her elderly Mother, Carole, pack for her move to the assisted living facility. Handling her keepsakes triggers Carole's memories and Ruth's questions. Carole's vivid memories from the period of her life 1937 to 1950, play out before us with a separate cast. We see Carole become the young immigrant escaping from NAZI Germany, the career girl and the woman who will reunite her family. Receiving this legacy, Ruth comes to understand the magnificence of her own Mother. Carole is whole and heard at last, secure in the transmittal of this important gift.

If this sounds interesting to you and you enjoy translating emotion and time into music and movement within an unconvnetional script, I'd love to talk to you about the project. Director, actors and technicians will be paid.

AUDITIONS: Anonymous Theatre

Come be a part of the secret...

ABOUT ANONYMOUS THEATRE: A play is selected. Auditions are held. The play is cast. The actors are sworn to secrecy. No one in the cast knows who their fellow performers will be, and they do not reveal their participation in the project to anyone. The actors rehearse one-on-one with the director. Then, on the night of the performance, the cast arrives in street clothes and enters the theatre as if they are members of the audience. They take their seats. They read their programs, chat with their neighbors, and in all ways behave like normal audience members. The house lights dim and the play begins, with each actor delivering his or her first line from the audience. The cast members discover one another's identity for the first time, in front of a live audience!

"...the energy at this show will be electric. Actors rarely get to perform these kind of exhilarating stunts, and audiences rarely get to see them. If the stunt fails, it will fail magnificently, like a daredevil misjudging his leap across that canyon, falling like a dying firefly into a seething abyss."
~ The Portland Mercury
