Queers: Eight Monologues: Information and Audition Notice

In the last week of September/first week of October (exact date to be confirmed): we will be producing Queers-Eight Monologues directed by Gennie Holmes. This is a wonderful collection of beautifully-written monologues, all by different writers, which celebrates a century of evolving social attitudes and political milestones in British LGBTQI+ history, as seen through the eyes of eight individuals. They were curated by Mark Gatiss and broadcast on BBC Four in 2017 and also staged at The Old Vic in London.

Poignant and personal, funny, tragic and riotous, these eight monologues for male and female performers cover major events – such as the Wolfenden Report of 1957, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and the debate over the age of consent – through deeply affecting and personal rites-of-passage stories.

The monologues will be rehearsed under social distancing conditions and the either or both produced live on stage under social distancing or broadcast online

The play is for 8 actors. Flexible casting re genders, age and race/ethnicity.

Auditions will take place by Zoom on Wednesday August 12th from 8pm and Sunday August 16th from 2pm.

Auditions are open to all. If you would like to book an audition slot, and get further information about the plays and audition pieces, please contact artisticdirector@criteriontheatre.co.uk
