7 actors needed for highbrow installation show at Edinburgh Fringe - London

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

Peculius Stage requires 7 actors to form the company of our 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show:

"In 2009, sixty devotees of motivational speaker James Arthur Ray paid him $10,000 each to join him on a spiritual retreat in his super-heated sweat lodge in the Arizona desert. He had promised to revolutionise their lives and so they never once questioned his authority, even as they lay dying. Following multiple Edinburgh Fringe sell-outs, Peculius Stage will recreate the harrowing events, inviting the audience to become one of Ray's followers and share in the experiences of those who survived, and those who didn't. Based on a true story, and set in a uniquely claustrophobic sweat lodge installation."

Peculius Stage is a company well versed in the Edinburgh Fringe. 'Hearts On Fire' is our most ambitious show to date. It will take place in an installation venue in C Nova (Venue 145) from the 2-27th August.

Auditions will be held 3rd and 4th of June at Greenwich Theatre, London.
