Call Out for actors with disabilities
Posted: 19 September, 2016
Project Arts Centre and Fishamble: The New Play Company are searching for actors with disabilites to audition for an upcoming production of Mainstream by Rosaleen McDonagh
We share a history, we share a memory and they both share my heart.
It’s that time of the year. A time that Eoin, Mary Anne and Jack all remember.
They have all agreed to take part in a documentary.
They have all lied to each other about what they are going to say on camera.
Project Arts Centre and the Olivier Award-winning Fishamble: The New Play Company present a new play by Rosaleen McDonagh about truth, lies and the mainstreaming of people with disabilities.
We are looking for 3 actors, all in their 30s/40s, 1 female and 2 male, to play 3 characters with physical disabilities. They are all wheelchair users, although we are open to changing this, depending on the disability of each actor. Mary Anne is an outspoken activist, Jack is a former Paralympian, charming and troubled, and Eoin is a dancer, who often has to keep the peace between Mary Anne and Jack.
If you are interested please email Cian O’Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 018819613 to arrange a meeting.

Mainstream is presented as part of Project 50, a season of work celebrating 50 years of Project Arts Centre.
