It’s Scrubbing Day, and innocent siblings Fanny and Brian dawdle during their weekly bath together as they await their unholiest of chores: sponge-bathing the festering monster who lives up the stairs…
 
Revelling in the discomfort of its audience, Scrubbing Day is a surreal, creepy black comedy/horror that takes ‘family obligation’ to a surreal extreme. It's full of intense, offbeat characters, if you're an actor looking to do something deep and striking...
 
Project location: Filming in the Wellington region

Job payment

This job is unpaid - Koha


Brian (Male. General age range 18-25)

Meek and mild-mannered due to uncontrollable anxiety. The best thing in Brian’s life is his relationship with his sister, Fanny. She is his light and joy, and the escapist relationship they share helps distract from their painful existence. He would love to escape with Fanny and protect her from all the harms of the world, but this is in direct conflict with his intense fear of displeasing his parents, and braving the harsh unknowns of the outside world.

What will be required

• Brian and

Males, aged 18 to 25

Fanny (Female. General age range 18-22)

As loud and bubbly as Brian is quiet. Energetic. Exuberant. Almost brattily obnoxious. Innocent and naive as a child. Her outgoing personality is stifled by her oppressive family. More aware of the unhealthiness of the family dynamic, she longs to escape, but doesn't have the wherewithal to follow through.

What will be required

• Brian and Fanny- Sharing a bath in swimsuit costume
• Full body hugging
• Parental forehead kisses

Females, aged 18 to 22

Dad (Male. General age range 40-60)

General anxiety disorder. Dysfunctional and manipulative, but genuinely loves his kids and has a trolling and theatrical sense of humour. Forever obsessed with putting out fires, maintaining tedious and unnecessary chores, and looking after Mother, he doesn't notice the house falling down around them.
