Theatre & Musicals

"The Challenge" is a new Australian play set in early 1800s Twofold Bay, NSW and inspired by true historical events. It is also loosely based on Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing", but a more feminist, queer and intersectional version with a twist. The work primarily explores gender identity and challenging social norms, featuring two Aboriginal women.

I am in need of guidance specifically in representing these women onstage as I am not Indigenous myself and concerned with portraying them equitably and compassionately. You would read the script and give me feedback and advice, help to brainstorm ideas, and call me out on any accidental perpetuation of latent racism. I am always open to criticism and aware that my own working knowledge of Indigenous history is very limited.

In terms of how we would work, in person (Melbourne) is ideal, but we can also communicate digitally. Anyone with experience in theatre or script writing will be helpful and I will financially compensate you for your time and emotional labour as well as I can.

I hope to find funding and put this play on either next year or in 2021, so there are no fixed deadlines. I would love to establish connections and foster a working relationship.

Job payment

$25 per hour - Rate is just a guess atm as it depends on my own income and how much time we spend
