JOIN IN THIS PRODUCTION
St Magnus International Festival is currently planning a ‘live’ and virtual production of George Mackay Brown’s play The Storm Watchers as part of the 2021 programme next June.
An intense piece of theatre from the early 1970s, the play has a cast of seven, all women, and the Festival is looking for local performers to rehearse and create this version in two casts.
HOW TO AUDITION
As the restrictions of Covid-19 continue, the Festival will be asking anyone wishing to audition to provide a short, self-recorded video monologue, of up to 5 minutes in length, taken from any playscript.
The audition can be recorded as video on computer, tablet or phone and sent to the Festival’s Director Alasdair Nicolson. The video should be sent to email@example.com by Monday 4th January 2021.
WeTransfer is a good way to send files if email is struggling!
Next year will mark 100 years from this world-renowned Orcadian poet’s birth and form part of a celebration of his work more broadly within the Festival. The play is described as “A play for voices” and this new production will be presented in memory of Kristin Linklater, another world-renowned figure whose life and work revolved around the voice.
