Two actors (1 female, 1 male) to be part of a test shoot for an independent feature film that is being developed.

This test consists of 4-page scene to be shot in one day, and is intended so that the Director and Producer can experiment on the look-and-feel, visual style of the film.

Important to know that if you are selected for this shoot, it does not guarantee a part in the actual film. However, it is an opportunity to showcase your acting skills and potential to be in the final movie.

Sam is a neurotic, backward-thinking guy looking for a lifelong partner, a wife.

He comes up with the insane idea of creating a fake play called “The Wife”, so he can audition people until he finds the perfect person to play the lead role – of being a wife.

It looks like he is making a real play, but it's one big lie.

The movie is a comedy, though a dark comedy. The humour comes from the irony, awkwardness and absurdity of the situations rather than the characters trying hard to be funny themselves.

Send us the link via StarNow.

Bea (theatre actor)

Bea doesn't have an extrovert persona off stage, which is unusual for some actors. That is part of her charm. Another thing that adds to her charm is a sense of purity, often fairly naive. But don't be mistaken: she IS the smartest person in the room. Always one step ahead. Get it?

Female, aged 25 to 36

Applications closed 12 April 2021.

Sam (struggling theatre writer/director)

If Sam wants something, he obsesses about it. The idea of a fake play to find a wife didn't come from him, it was a friend who created this mess on his behalf. Nonetheless, he accepted and embarked on it. Because deep inside he believes that the outcome of this irresponsible act, this big lie, will truly be wonderful. He MUST do this.

Male, aged 35 to 43
