After a very successful run of Bittersweet in June of this year, Born to Burn productions is now looking for nine women actors for their next project.
The project is a brand new play of c. 60 mins and is a collaboration between four Irish women writers. The play will be staged from Tuesday 24th – Saturday 28th November 2015, in a Dublin theatre venue to be confirmed.
This ground-breaking production, set in the 16th century, is in the ‘trickster’ story-telling tradition. An aptitude for physical theatre is essential for some roles, and an advantage for others.
Actors will be paid 45% of Box Office intake after expenses, in proportion to their role.

The available parts are listed below. If you are interested in auditioning for any of these parts, please email us your CV and a headshot before Wednesday 30th October 2015 to vashti.burns.the.stage@gmail.com

Auditions will take place on the evenings of 2nd, 3rd and 4th October (6pm – 8pm) in a Dublin city centre location. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted by email before the audition.

Born to Burn productions is a not-for-profit community drama group. For more information about Born to Burn, check out our website:www.borntoburnproductions.com
