CASTING NOTICE: Non-Union Actors for LA Premiere of "of Alan"


  • Pieter Performance Space 420 W Avenue 33 Suite 10 Los Angeles, California USA (map)

“of Alan”

TEAM
Production Company: Experimental Bitch Presents
Writer: Shelby Brage
Casting Director: Taylor Burkey of Burkey Casting

PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION
Casting the Los Angeles premiere of “of Alan”. Company states: “In this original play by writer/performer Shelby Brage, the audience is immersed within the turbulent world of mid-life schizophrenic sex offender Alan. Set in the dark corners of sunny LA, both the characters and the audience find their conceptions of normalcy violently destabilized. Touching poignantly - and painfully - on dilemmas of mental health, incarceration, attachment, and familial love, this piece upends notions of sanity with moving flair.”
