Auditions: STRANGER at MN Fringe 2017

Perspectives Theater Company presents:
by Morgan Holmes & Erika Levy

A modern epic with biblical foundation, STRANGER reinterprets the story of Exodus to call out the joy, messiness, and struggle of being seen at the intersection of race and faith, as drawn from interviews and stories of POC in the local and national Jewish community.

We are looking for 3 non-union actors; we strongly encourage actors who identify as POC, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, or Jewish to audition. This work is ensemble-driven. Some parts of the story will be scripted ahead of time and some parts we will devise together.

Rehearsals: mid-June through beginning of August, location TBD
Tech: TBD (Fringe assigns 3 hours some time July 30-August 2; we'll be notified in early June)
Performances: at the Rarig Center Arena on the U of M West Bank
