Call for actors and lighting designer for Brian Friel's Molly Sweeney

2010


Les Manouches will be producing Brian Friel’s play Molly Sweeney, directed by Aktina Stathaki. Rehearsals are expected to start in mid-January and performances will be in mid-March at the
LaGuardia Performing Arts Center in Long Island City. [Following the
initial run we hope to be able to extend the run in another theater in
the city]. We are currently looking for 3 actors and a lighting designer
– see below for the details. Ideally we’d like to work with people who
enjoy the creative process, are willing to experiment and believe in
our vision and approach to theater so that we could become long-term
collaborators for future projects. The production is non equity and non
paying, but we will share a percentage of the box office earnings.

About the play: Molly Sweeney, based on a true story published by neurologist Oliver Sachs, tells the story of Molly, a woman blind since infancy, whose world is drastically changed after her
husband and her doctor’s intervention to restore her sight. This is a
complex memory play, engaging subtly with issues of identity and
freedom, where the story unfolds through the individual narratives of
the three characters, each of them occupying their own separate space.
Brian Friel is one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights.

We are looking for:
Actors for the roles of:

Molly Sweeney, late 3Os. An independent woman who has created a full life for herself. Conceding to her husband’s passion to “save” her will radically change her world.

Frank Sweeney, late 3Os, Molly’s husband. A man always at the pursuit of the next noble goal, always trying to save the world.

Dr. Rice: mid-late 4Os . Molly’s doctor. He gets involved in the project of restoring Molly’s vision partly in order to compensate for past personal and professional loss.

Rehearsals: weekday evenings and early afternoons. Please email us with a photo and resume at lesmanouchestheatre@gmail.com to schedule an audition.

Lighting designer: Lighting is a very essential part for this project and a close collaboration with the director will be required. The lighting designer and director will have to work around
the specific conditions and restrictions of the LAPAC theater space.

For any questions please email lesmanouchestheatre@gmail.com
