We're All Terrible, Let's Watch TV - Actors Required for a Comedy Play

New South Wales, Australia
Listed by View details

We are a new production company that began thanks to the 2020 covid lockdowns and we have written a play! We are holding auditions for We’re All Terrible, Let’s Watch TV.

After years of crawling up the career ladder, newly divorced single mother Amber returns to a radically different workplace and a new counterpart threatening to destroy everything she stands for. When the fight gets personal, long-bubbling rivalries explode into office-wide warfare… with disastrous consequences. A bracing, comedic and irreverent exploration of modern gender politics, We’re All Terrible, Let’s Watch TV is a mad dash journey through a sketch show dystopia.

This is a comedy that explores gender equality in a way that has never been done before.

At this time we will only be able to accept submissions from individuals who are fully vaccinated, so please confirm this in a quick chat to camera along with your submission. Submissions are by self tapes due by 17th Oct, and callbacks will be in person on 23rd Oct and 24th Oct. The Play will be showcased with 12 shows between 20th Jan - 6th Feb 2022. Please do not apply if you are not available for any of the show dates.

Character Descriptions:

-Amber: Single mum with x2 kids age 4 and 7
She often comes across as stern, bossy and blunt, but in reality she is just getting the job done, and making sure it gets done well.

-Todd: Representing the patriarchy, even today trying to instill it's ways on everyone, trying to keep things the way it has been for a long time. The more outwardly opinionated misogynist. Persecutor
Think Stifler from American Pie mix with Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother

-Stephanie: Silently judged by others for ‘working against feminism.’ by fitting into stereotypes, letting things slide that shouldn’t, following social pressures to fit in, and as a result deciding to disengage in ways and just focus on themselves.
Think Elle from Legally Blonde (really smart and warm but also loves the shiny things in life and can come across slightly air-heady at times) mixed with the grounded confidence of a Scarlett Johansson.

-Riccardo: Representing Toxic masculinity. the average young male who isn’t very woke or aware of their own internalised misogyny, very self focused
“Macho Man”, “Italian Stallion”, think John Tucker (from John Tucker Must Die) or Danny (from Greece)

-Marianna: Feminist veteran, who’s been in this battle actively for a while and who has built up a lot of confidence, but also has decided that some battles aren’t worth fighting.

-Dave - Old school, older male who is stuck in their ways and won’t adapt to the new feminist movement, however passive to it all, suffer in silence type. Think Ron Burgundy from Anchorman. Middle aged man with a wife and kids.

-Isobel: New to the game of feminism. Non binary, finding their place and type of feminist. Has opinions but still trying to find their way and learn more about it all, more of an internal journey.

-Adam: Feminist male, softer and more empathetic. “A-sexual, Chinese-Australian man”. Has spent his life trying to fight against the Nerdy Asian Guy Stereotype
