Chicago IL – “Reservoir Dogs” & “Inglourious Basterds” (non-equity auditions)

08/06/2013

Stage adaptations of “Reservoir Dogs” & “Inglourious Basterds” (non-equity auditions)

Where: Chicago, IL
This casting notice was posted on auditionsfree.com

Type: Theater

Wanted: Women & Men willing to battle their inner demons by challenging the norm & re-defining expectations.

Too often a society becomes complacent with their personal thoughts & are persuaded to believe in a certain manner concerning the everyday roles of both women & men. For our next two shows, Bare Knuckle Productions will examine the dichotomy of personal & societal perceptions while dissecting what it means to be a woman as we let loose a ferocious pack of ladies, Quentin Tarantino-style!

In cooperation with Roundhouse Productions, we will be re-mounting their successful 2011 all-female version of “Reservoir Dogs.” The story remains the same to the film, but the impact on the audience’s ideals will be forever changed as women take hold of the wheel in this colorful crime story gone awry.

Stretching the boundaries yet in a completely different manner, “Inglourious Bitches” follows a pack of specialized American soldiers on a guilt-free ravaging mission against Nazi Germany. Women take point as this version’s “Basterds” yet this femininity is not recognized except for inside of the individual audience member’s thoughts; all other casting will be gender-blind.
