Calvin and Daciana are both actors – but they each have other jobs outwith the profession. They met on-set in rehearsal and a clear mutual attraction resulted in them having a sexual encounter.
The play opens, post-coital, as Calvin lies in bed, reading a script aloud. Daciana, wearing Calvin’s shirt, is sitting on the bed’s edge, responding by reading her character’s lines from her copy of the same script.
A whisky bottle, cups and an ironing board are nearby, clothes are strewn around. Several moments in, they abandon their manuscripts and begin a conversation about each other’s lives, background and aspirations.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesAuditioning will take place once all suitable applications have been received and rehearsals will begin early in 2020. I must re-emphasise that only talented and experienced theatre actresses will be considered for the role of Daciana. The other role of Calvin has already been cast and will be played by an extremely proficient actor.
