After the success of the last year’s touring production, 17 ^3, Little Fish is in the process of casting for a pilot theatre project exploring hate crime. “Where The Lines Are Drawn” by Suha Al- Khayyat (Viralize, Jaded, Kiss & Tell) will be a 45-minute performance followed by a 30-minute workshop for young people exploring the motivations behind hate crime. Using four actors who will play multiple roles, the piece will explore how verbal abuse and cyber bullying can escalate into crime and violence, how UK laws protect victims of hate crime, and what happens to perpetrators after a crime is reported.
The performance workshop will be previewed in a small number of secondary schools before a showcase performance at Bath Theatre in Woolwich as a part of Anti-Hate Crime Week.
The company is looking to cast 4 very strong actors to take part in the tour. All actors need to be over 18 playing teenagers (aged 16). The play is set in London. Actors must have a strong interest in issue based theatre for young people and playing multiple roles. They must also have experience touring to schools and facilitating post-show workshops. The current actor requirements are:
Male actor 1 – Multi-roles- must be able to play a 16-year-old.
Male actor 2 – Multi-roles- must be able to play a 16-year-old.
Female actor 1 – Multi-roles- must be able to play a 16-year-old.
Female actor 2 – Multi-roles- must be able to play a 16-year-old.
In the piece, we are looking at disability and gender, so whilst we welcome actors of all abilities and ethnicities, we are also particularly interested in casting one actor who has a disability as well as one actor who identifies as androgynous or gender non-binary.
