Night & Day: To be staged from 09 to 14 October 2017

Artscape is seeking two male characters to play in a two-hander set in prison.

Character 1
Name: Vincent, Prisoner aged 25 - 40
Gender: Male
Physical Characteristics: medium build, African, isiXhosa-speaking
Vincent is a talkative, charming and intelligent man who does not look like a “typical” prisoner. Beneath the upbeat nature is a man uncomfortable with silence who hides his true feelings behind a smile.

Character 2
Name: Alfred, Prison Warder aged 30 - 45
Gender: Male
Physical Characteristics: large to very large build, African, isiXhosa-speaking.
Alfred is a religious man who holds traditional values. He generally has a mild temperament and an air of wisdom; he is assertive when he needs to be.

Both actors auditioning must be available from 11 September to 07 October 2017 and they will be paired up on the audition day.

Monologues are available upon request.
