Actress Required for a Short Theatre Drama in Edinburgh Fringe 2021

Edinburgh, UK
Listed by View details

CONRAD DYCE is one of three stage dramas as part of a performance trilogy "Couples" planned for this year's Edinburgh Fringe. An actress is required to play the central character's ex-partner Donna in this stylised drama. Dyce is a highly unorthodox standup comedian whose material is horrifically shocking and devoid of any good taste boundaries. During his live peformance he is heckled from the audience by a woman. It later transpires that this is Donna who, following a grotesque and vile anecdote about her deceased baby, she storms the stage and verbally then physically attacks her former lover - bringing the drama to a deeply disconcerting climax.

Applicants for the role of Donna - (the lead role of Conrad Dyce has now been cast) must be trained, skilled and experienced in theatre performance, reliable, collaborative, committed and punctual and able to take direction well.

Please make sure you are able to provide full details of your acting education and past experience in speaking roles, together with a showreel link, recent headshot and contact information.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Rehearsals will begin as soon as the play is cast and mutual arrangements can be made to begin early-mid May 2021. Ideally we'll find some suitable rehearsal space in Edinburgh.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - Arrangements will be made at the conclusion of the performances.

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.

All advertisers agree to abide by the UK National Minimum Wage Act and are responsible for defining the nature of their production and any payment requirements. Find out more.


The character of Donna is a troubled but forceful individual. As she is initially part of the audience, it is required that the audience view her merely as a heckler, and even when she invades the stage/performance space, this illusion should be maintained until the climax of the drama - therefore a skilled and credible acting performance is essential.

Female, aged 20 to 35
