Roles available are: Male Samoan, Male Māori, 2x Female (any ethnicity). Auditions are in Auckland and Wellington in February. For details please see The Big Idea
Directed by Kerryn Palmer, OUTLIERS features 9 extracts from modern NZ plays that voice what it is like in the out-groups and in-groups of a normalising world. Focused on the perspective of the outlier, the show can open discussion about the labels we identify with and the ones we’re stuck with. Texts include extracts from Jamie McCaskill’s Manawa, Briar Grace-Smith’s Purapurawhetū, Greg McGee’s Foreskin’s Lament, Sam Brooks’ Queen and Henrietta Bollinger’s A Cripple Talks About Anatomy. Travelling direct to secondary schools around the country from Queenstown to Kaitaia, May and June 2017. www.ensembleimpact.com for tour details and bookings.
