CURRENT AUDITIONS

SecondStory Repertory is holding auditions for our February 2023 production of The Revolutionists by Lauren Gunderson. Directed by Rachel Delmar. (Indoor, in person, presentation. SSR follows all safety protocols required by the City, County, State, and Federal health authorities.)

The Revolutionists is a play that tackles the question: “Who gets to tell our story?” The story? Four very real women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror: playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle. They hang out, dream, fight, love, and plot a murder of an editor of the paper, all while trying not to loose their heads in the name of trying to beat back the extremist insanity in Paris, 1793. What was a hopeful revolution for the people is now sinking into hyper-violent hypocritical male rhetoric or classist beliefs. This timely, contemporary reimagined grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about the relationships between violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and equity, witnessing and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world.  

It’s a true story.
Or total fiction.
Or a play about a play.
Or a raucous resurrection...that ends in a song and a scaffold.

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Roles are for ages 18 and up. SecondStory Repertory does not discriminate based on; race, gender, age, or sexual orientation in any of our casting processes. The role of OLYMPE de GOUGES has been cast and will be performed by Jennifer Reif.

CHARLOTTE CORDAY— Badass country person and assassin. Very serious, hardened by righteousness, never been kissed.
MARIE ANTOINETTE— Less badass but fascinating former queen of France. Bubbly, graceful, opinionated, totally unaware, unintentionally rude, and oddly prescient. Never had a real friend.
MARIANNE ANGELLE— A badass black person in Paris. From the Caribbean and a free person, a spy working with their partner, Vincent. Tough, classy, vigilant. The sanest one of them all.

 

SecondStory pays a stipend of $250 to defray the cost of participation in the production.
