ACT THEATRE: Self-tape Submissions for WOLF PLAY

ACT - A Contemporary Theatre

About the project and the company

ACT – A Contemporary Theatre is currently accepting self-tape submissions for all roles and understudy positions in Hansol Jung’s WOLF PLAY, directed by Rosa Joshi. Rehearsals begin April 11, 2023 for performances May 5 – May 21, 2023.

A southpaw boxer is on the verge of a pro debut when their wife signs the adoption papers for a Korean boy. The boy’s original adoptive father was all set to hand him over to a new home… until he realizes the boy would have no “dad.” Caught in the middle, the child launches himself on a lone wolf’s journey to find a pack he can call his own. From South Korean playwright Hansol Jung, Wolf Play is a mischievous and affecting new play about the families we choose and unchoose.

Deadline for submissions:  November 13, 2022
