Job Details

DESCRIPTION

We are casting actors for our upcoming production of “Sperm Play (or the Could’ve Beens)” by Joe Reault in NY Winterfest 2020; directed by Stephen Stanec, associate directed by Alyssa Kakis, co-produced by Jamie Lowenstein & Joe Reault.

We are especially seeking TGNC actors for this production. Sperm Cell 2 & Sperm Cell 5 are specifically referred to using “they/them” pronouns within the show while other Sperm Cells are referred to using “he/him.” However…..they’re sperm cells! So while gender is present in the piece as a form of expression, none of them really have a “gender,” so we’re interested in seeing you for the role *you* connect with. If you have further questions about this, please let us know.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
Andi the Anus: A semi-ambivalent, semi-maternal witness to the sperm cells; Pete’s only friend; addicted to poppers; inexplicably in drag.

Pete the Prostate: Charismatic dom, sexual mentor to the sperm cells; has committed himself to total apathy but is begrudgingly gaining emotional depth.

Sperm Cell 1/Geoff Jr: Religious zealot dedicated to pleasing his creator, Geoff.

Sperm Cell 3/Baby Boy/Daddy:The first object of Pete’s affection, forced to learn quickly in their relationship, eager to love and be loved.

Sperm Cell 4/Mast: Traditionally attractive, protective of their masculinity, no homo bro.

Sperm Cell 5: Overwhelmed nihilist, doesn’t care about their appearance, coping as best they can.

TO AUDITION:
Please submit a headshot and resume by Dec. 30 at midnight to spermplay2020@gmail.com.

SCHEDULE:
Rehearsals will begin on Jan. 3, 2020 and will be 3-4 evenings and 1 weekend rehearsal each week.
