Bloodletting Auditions

Pork Filled Productions

About the project and the company

Pork Filled Productions announces auditions for our 2023 mainstage show, Bloodletting, by Boni Alvarez and directed by Zenaida R. Smith (a white haunting).

 

Siblings Farrah and Bosley Legazpi are forced to make a journey back to the Motherland. Their father’s last wish was for his ashes to be sprinkled in the newly minted ‘natural wonder’ – the Underground River of Palawan in the Philippines. During the tension-filled journey, the two must sort out their father’s affairs as well as their own relationship. When they discover that one of them is an aswang (a Filipino witch), 30+ years of feelings come to a boil. Is it easier to accept a sibling’s cruel nature if it is steeped in the supernatural?

 

Bloodletting will be performed at Theatre Off Jackson in Seattle’s International District – 409 7th Ave S. Seattle, WA 98104 – October 19 to November 4. Performances will run Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings with one (1) Sunday matinee and one (1) Monday industry night performance. There will be one week of streaming approximately two weeks later.
