And here we are, folks. After much reading and careful deliberation, we are thrilled to be kicking off this week by officially announcing playwrights Bil Antoniou and Grace Thompson Campbell as part of The Muddy Mary Project’s debut series: Women Past, Present & Fictional! Congratulations to them, and a big thank you to everyone who applied to this year’s festival. There was so much great work sent to us, and that is exciting. Stay tuned to learn all about what Bil and Grace have in store for you for the fall. We’ll be adding two new pages to the site dedicated specifically to their respective shows: Heart Of The Storm & My Nightmares Wear White.
In the meantime, Bil is holding auditions this Saturday for Heart Of The Storm. His call is below. Contact him through the email provided, and be sure spread the word to anyone you think might be interested! 🙂
Port Moresby Productions is now accepting submissions for the October 2015 production of
“HEART OF THE STORM”
By Bil Antoniou
This production is a one-act play and will be part of the Muddy Mary Project, www.muddymary.ca. This is one of three plays that will be three performed in the festival, and it will be performed three times.
A world-famous pop singer, an Oscar winning actor and an island recently devastated by a hurricane. These two haven’t seen each other since their divorce, and when they run into each other at a hotel bar find they have a lot of catching up to do. They are there to help the victims of the storm, but as they revisit their stormy past, the definition of “needy” begins to raise its own brand of mayhem.
Auditions will be held on the afternoon of Saturday, June 27, 2015 at Fraser Studios.
Rehearsals begin mid-to-late August and will take place on two weekday evenings and one afternoon on weekends.
The run of the show is a weekend in October. Specific dates and location TBA (will be in Toronto).
The production will be applying for the Artists’ Collective Policy through the Canadian Actors Equity Association. Equity Members are invited to apply.
