Theater Auditions in Springfield, MA for “Sweat”

02/04/2019

Seeking: Brucie and Evan in SWEAT

Location: Springfield, MA

Type: Theater

Created through interviews with the citizens of Reading, PA, Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning SWEAT deftly and unflinchingly examines the complicated ways race, class, and gender intersect in a struggling factory town. Nottage’s well-drawn characters stir us to think about how we overlook what hate can look like and how close it is to us, until we are forced to confront it.

Seeking male or male-presenting African-American actors for the following roles:

Evan — Evan is an African-American man in his forties whose physicality Nottage describes as “comfortably puffy” parole officer.

Brucie — Brucie, an African-American man in his forties, is Cynthia’s husband. Brucie has been out of work for nearly two years due to union strikes. This has led him to an incredibly dark place. He has become self-destructive during his struggle with depression. His addiction has led to him stealing from Cynthia and neglecting Chris.

Auditions by appointment only. Please email to set up a time.

All rehearsals and performances will be in the Curtain Theatre at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Payment: Other

City or Location of call: Springfield, MA
Please submit to: eeggers@umass.edu by 2019-02-18
