Let’s make the most of the pleasant weather in Dubai while it lasts and go for a picnic! All you’ve got to do is bring some food and soft drinks to share and a mat (or chair or whatever you want to sit on).
Dubai Drama Group will bring disposables and soft drinks to add to yours.
Please be aware that there will be no BBQ-ing though. Let’s hang out and shoot the breeze! See you there!
AUDITIONS FOR THE DDG’S APRIL PRODUCTION OF ‘GOD OF CARNAGE’
7.30 – 9 PM – Wednesday 5th December – Golf Tower 2, The Greens
God of Carnage is a play by Yasmina Reza. It is about two pairs of parents, one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park, who meet to discuss the matter in a civilized manner. However, as the evening goes on, the parents become increasingly childish, resulting in the evening devolving into chaos.
We are casting for 4 actors (2m, 2w) who are interested in playing civilized people with an animal/savage mind. This is a challenging play for any actor as it requires a wide range of expression: from nicely diplomatic to overtly savage.
Age range: 30s, 40s
Michael, a man who accepts life as it is and has no longer any great aspirations. Yet he has an uncouth nature and is not shy to voice his “not-so-civilized” opinions.
Veronica, a lover of art and the African continent yet utterly judgmental. Married to Michael.
Annette, a high-strung woman who is constantly at the brink of a panic attack.
Alan, a rude lawyer with a philosophical side. Married to Annette.
To confirm your attendance and to receive the audition pieces, please contact the Director, Nina Hein, on firstname.lastname@example.org
