So, for our new show in Edinburgh we thought it'd be interesting to see what happened when a new actor performed FROM THE MOUTHS OF THE GODS each day. We posted this blog asking if any actors fancied being a part of the adventure. So many wonderful people got in touch.
To date, FROM THE MOUTHS OF THE GODS has been performed by over 30 actors and over 30 audience members who have volunteered to be in the show.
We have 8 performances to go. 2 in Sheffield and 6 in London.
FROM THE MOUTHS OF THE GODS is a show about Freewill, Determinism and Kissing. It's a show which should be performed by 1 actor and 1 audience member picked from the crowd. It's a show which should be as unlikely as possible, or probable.
So, as part of the probability of the show, we're opening an invitation for up to 8 more actors to perform the show.
Now, there are some things to chat through. But the whole thing will take up maybe 1hr45 of your time. The show is 1hr and you'll need minimal prep before hand. However, you will need to be able to sight read, welcome an audience and be nice and friendly. You'll need to be able to work with the rhythm of a text. You will receive a set of instructions and a script maybe a day before. The show is all performed in a studio theatre.
And then there's the kissing...we'll talk about that. But you'll need to be over 18.
If you want to chat, or are interested in performing the piece then please get in touch. Drop Veronica a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
And, just to be clear, we'd be asking you to volunteer that 1hr45mins of your time. If no-one fancies it, then we have 4 actors who will rotate across the performances. So it's not something we're relying on, but something we think could be rather exciting to keep playing with.
Let us know if you fancy it. Let us know what sort of performer you are and what you've been up to.
SHEFFIELD: 4th - 5th October with Theatre Delicatessen
LONDON: 11th - 16th October with Greenwich Theatre
And a huge thanks to the wonderful bunch of people who have picked up the script so far.
