Audition Notice: Tuesday Night Café Theatre presents “No Exit”


This November, Tuesday Night Café Theatre brings you Jean-Paul Sartre’s most famous play No Exit (Huis Clos), a one-act dark dramedy complete with sadistic characters and a healthy serving of existential dread, directed by Effy Blanchard.

Auditions:
Tuesday September 25th 6-10pm
Wednesday September 26th 6-10pm
McGill University Arts Building, Room TBD

Callbacks:
Thursday September 27th 8-10pm

Performance Dates:
November 15th-17th and 22nd-24th

This show is open to anyone, whether you are a student at McGill or not.
Auditioners should read over the monologue posted at https://www.facebook.com/events/271633700142271/ ahead of auditions, which everyone will be asked to perform. You do not need to learn it, just get a sense of what it’s about before you enter the room.

Notes on casting:
Although the cast of the play is comprised of two women and one man, TNC will be casting this show based on which actors we see fits each character best, regardless of gender identity. Since the play is originally written in French, some passages of the script will be in their original language, so knowledge of the language is an asset but not mandatory. The production will be experimenting with movement based theatre, so experience in dance or any kind of physical practice is an asset but not mandatory.

If you can’t make it to any of the audition slots, you can submit a video recording of you delivering the monologue. Please email it before 8pm on Wednesday September 26th to almademontplaisir@gmail.com or frederiqueblanchard@gmail.com, the directors.
