Emergency Auditions for Not Medea by Allison Gregory

Flat Earth Theatre is urgently seeking an actor to play the role of Jason for its Spring 2019 production of Not Medea by Allison Gregory, directed by Elizabeth Ramirez. A small stipend for cast members will be offered.

Character Description

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are looking to cast the role of Jason only. Other characters have already been cast.

  • Jason - 30-50, Masculine. All ethnicities are encouraged to apply. A handsome man at the turning point to middle age. His ambition is beginning to show through his charismatic demeanor, he will never love anyone as much as he loves himself. Intelligent, manipulative, opportunistic, a charming jackass. (Should be comfortable appearing shirtless).

Show Summary:

The show must go on when a performance of the epic Greek tragedy Medea is usurped by someone who is decidedly not Medea. With her own stories to tell, and her own losses to mourn, one mother wrestles with the darker corners of parenthood, wandering the fine line between guilt and grief. Allison Gregory’s rule-breaking, unconventional Not Medea takes a new and darkly humorous approach to an ancient tale from the perspective of a modern woman.
