Audition Notice for Nextfest 2017

The Jackal and Her Reflection
written by Camille Pavlenko
directed by Tonya Rae Chrystian

Characters
•Arba (female) – the assassinated Pharaoh Hatshepsu
•Nefertari (female) – a lowly street walker

Setting
The ancient city of Memphis, Egypt, 1457 BCE. Although the play is stylized, embellishes upon history, and contains many anachronisms and liberties, every effort will be made to have as multi-ethnic a cast as possible. Historically, Hatshepsut was from a long line of indigenous, Egyptian Pharaohs. Egypt, at all points in history, was a multicultural epicentre and its citizens were people from all lands and of all ethnic backgrounds. This production aims to reflect this diversity, and actors of all ethnicities are welcome to apply. However, it is preferable the cast will contain no more than one actor of a European background.

Friday, March 31, 7pm-9pm
Sunday, April 2, 12pm-2pm
