Blood like Water – Auditions
September 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Help bring Blood like Water, Full Fathom’s first show of the Fall 2019 season, to life! Blood like Water is a full length show written and directed by Maeve Aurora Chapman that explores what it means to be family through a combination lense of realism and surrealism. Protagonist Clemence explores whether blood (relatives) or water (friends) make up family through this staged production with animated and film elements that convey scenery, thoughts, and underlying themes. ROLESClemence – 16. An artist. Clever. Observant. Kind of like Juno mixed with Alice from Fun Home.Ryland – Early 40s. Business man, and a very successful one at that. Never wanted kids, but loves his kid more than anything. Ego. Ego. Ego. Ego to protect himself. There’s a heart under there somewhere.Arlene – Early 40s. Mother of Clemence. Heartfelt but harsh when necessary. Lupus warrior. Therapist.Patricia – New nurse at the hospital Arlene is at. Late 20s. A New England Southern Bell. Big heart. Bad judge of character.WHAT TO BRINGPlease bring your headshot and resume to the audition. Alternatively, you may email your email and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. No monologue needed.
