Blue in the Right Way is seeking a BIPOC transfemme performer for the role of SOLANGE (see character description below) in our debut production of WOMEN BEWARE WOMEN by Thomas Middleton, directed by Kevin V. Smith, freely adapted by Kevin V. Smith and Daiva Bhandari with Spanish translation by Sonia Perelló, and with casting direction by Catherine Miller.
Thomas Middleton's 1621 psychosexual revenge tragedy tells the story of four women's lives in the stranglehold of the patriarchy. In this queer feminist take, the lacerating personal narration of two surreal transfemme drag queens frames Middleton's timeless tale, rushing it into the here and now. Our original English/Spanish adaptation dives deep, excavating the social frameworks of gender violence and the gender of violence, as the plot hurtles towards a devastating and outrageous new ending for our modern times.
CW: Incest, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, sexual coercion, assault and violence.

WE ARE CURRENTLY ONLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR THE ROLE OF SOLANGE.
In reference to the character descriptions - most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/her pronouns, and you will see that in the descriptions above. But however limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible, and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We will also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities. In addition, we will list disabilities when specific to a character but are otherwise seeking actors with disabilities as well as non-disabled actors for all roles.
