Posted: 18 October, 2019

Do you identify as a: performer of colour, LGBTQ+ performer, performer with a disability, working class performer.
Have you got lived experience dealing with any (or all) of the following: White privilege, Cis-gendered privilege, Non-disabled privilege, Middle-class privilege?
Are you interested in exploring your experiences in a boundary pushing devised musical theatre show?
Louise White is making a radical contemporary musical about privilege, inequality and collective denial, which will premiere in Project Arts Centre, Space Upstairs in Autumn 2020.
Louise wishes to cast performers who will investigate and explore privilege from a personal standpoint and who will push the boundaries of the work. She will incorporate performers’ experiences, as well as multiple thematic and political references, and will weave them into the content of the show.
Performers do not need to be musical theatre performers but must have the proficiency to sing solo if required.
