Details of Role

LipZinc Theatre are currently casting some exciting roles for our latest show, 'Dolly'. It is a black comedy set in the West of Ireland so accents are important. The play will be going to Edinburgh Fringe in August. Send headshots and CV's to lipzinctheatre@gmail.com and we will be in touch asap. For now, payment will be profit share with accomodation provided.

Roles:
JOHN - (playing age 50 - 70)
CORMAC - (Playing age 30 - 60)
GERALDINE - (playing age 50 - 70)

Synopsis:
The West of Ireland is an old-fashioned society; rich in personality and culture but still teeming with the stigma and prejudice of another age. It is against this backdrop that the dark and humorous tale of ‘Dolly’ is told. Following the death of a close friend, and the growing apathy of his parents, our protagonist, Joe, longs for a new purpose. Farm life will no longer suffice as he delves into an addictive disguise, through which the loneliness of his circumstances cannot extend. This play is both a reflection of the harsh struggle for identity and a celebration of the unstoppable desire to find yourself in spite of your surroundings.
