Theater Emory Non-Union Professional Casting Notice for Undergraduate Research Project Everyone Calls Her Grace by H Wagner

Summary:

"Everyone Calls Her Grace" is a play about Grace O’Malley, a 16th century Irish pirate. Well, sort of. It’s about Grace, or Gráinne, or Granuaile, or “Grace the Bald,” or Grany, or The Pirate Queen, or her sons or husbands or even Queen Elizabeth I, depending on who you ask. We’re trying to write a play about it; the actors are still figuring it out. “Grace” explores how history erases, sanitizes, and whitewashes figures of the past—and whether the arts, and the things we know about ourselves, can provide a means to reexamine that history. Plus, like, pirates.

Content Warning: suicidal ideation, frank talk of death, sexual harassment/assault

Show Information: An in-person workshop production with rehearsals beginning in early September and ending in mid-October, with performances the week of October 4th.

Character Description:

Grainne - grahn-yuh - Nonbinary POC. 18-mid 30s. One of three actors playing "Grace O'Malley" in a devised production. Intuitive, trying to be more assertive, and somehow both jaded and optimistic. When they were a kid, they were definitely the one to ask the teacher if they could have class outside.

This non-union role for a professional actor includes working as a part of playwright H Wagner’s Undergraduate Research Project in a workshop setting with the rest of the cast comprising undergraduate student actors. This position is required to adhere to all the policies and procedures of the College and Emory University, which will be shared in trainings during the onboarding process.
