Casting notice: “All are welcome to audition and share their beautiful, unique selves.

Owners is a dark comedy about ownership, conquest, love, and death. Marion—a powerful property developer—and Worsely, her despondent subordinate, scheme to eject Alec, Lisa, and their family from their squalid apartment. As this unsavoury business transpires, the play reveals the web of power dynamics that have led these characters to this moment and the ever darker, more twisted desires that drive them. Everything (and everyone) is up for barter and disposal; a baby becomes an object of transaction, sexual favours are exchanged, and murders are plotted.
