Job Details


Currently seeking two directors, please see individual details bellow

Show one “Perfect For Me”

A play about the real life ethics and science behind head transplants. A deeply disabled woman is approached by a doctor about the possibility of having her head transplanted onto another person. She is also coping with the loss of her girlfriend and the stresses of her estranged family.

This is a procedure which is actually being developed, so an interest in science would be a big plus. Run in small, found spaces in new york city (possibly traveling to boston) . Show dates June 7th, 8th, 9th, 12th, 17th, 21st and 26th OR 27th. To rehearse during the day in midtown manhattan. 3 out of four of characters in this show have already been cast, as it has been through an extensive developmental period.

Pay: 250 dollars total.

Show Two

A comedy about conspiracy theories, time travel and aliens, I am currently searching for a director for a developmental workshop/staged reading. This will be a very collaborative experience, where the director will get the chance to help develop a script before hopefully going into a full production.
