Casting Opportunities

Supertopia

Everyday Inferno Theatre Company is now accepting submissions for our upcoming free show in Central Park, Supertopia. See below for auditions and submission information.

Supertopia is a play about what happens when what we owe to other people conflicts with what we owe to ourselves. A group of people who could easily be described as incredible find themselves in a situation where super is normal and nobody's in desperate need of a hero. Answerable to no one but themselves, the citizens of Supertopia must come to terms with their abilities and decide to what degree what they can do determines who they are.

Rehearses early July through mid-August (nights and weekends in Central Park, Brooklyn, and lower Manhattan. Final dress rehearsal 8/10; Performances Friday through Sunday early evenings 8/11-8/13 and 8/18-8/20.

Access Theater project residency
through July 2017

DRAMATURG: Seeking a historically-minded dramaturg to join our ongoing developmental work at the Access Theater, where we are in residence through July 2017 alongside Bedlam, the Elevator Repair Service, Waterwell, and others. Quicksand is a theatrical adaptation of Nella Larsen's novel of the same name and deals in depth with issues of race and gender in the late 1920s. Our ideal candidate is someone deeply interested in the historical background of the piece, the process of adaptation, and the personal and social issues explored by the work.
Compensation: All participants in the developmental residency are volunteering their time and there is no stipend currently associated with the project, but we do hope to bring this project to full production in a future season.
Commitment: The Quicksand corps meets 1-3 times per month (generally nights and weekends) in studio space. The specific time commitment for the dramaturgy position can be extremely flexible to suit the needs of the dramaturg and playwright.
