Seeking an actress over 30 who identifies as Central or East Asian for staged reading a new translation of a new play by Olzhas Zanaydarov (translated by John Freedman), directed by Jeremy Aluma.
ZIYASH - Female, Central Asian, Muslim, 30-50s
Based on real events, Olzhas Zhanaydarov's The Store exposes the brutal torment of a Kazakh migrant working in Moscow. Public indifference and a corrupt police force silence young victims lured from their homeland by a Kazakh trafficker. Promises of money, citizenship, and family reunification set the stage for a life of indentured servitude and abuse, a reality rationalized by religious interpretations of master and slave.
