Samson Agonistes - Marlowe

7:00pm, Wed 24th October 2018 at Judith E. Wilson Drama Studio
Michaelmas Week 3

Applications to Direct

//PLEASE NOTE DEADLINE//

We require a director for a one-night-only, script-in-hand staging of "Samson Agonistes" by John Kinsella. The performance will be on Wednesday 24th October at 7pm in the Judith E Wilson drama studio. You MUST be available on this date, as well as Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st October all day in order to rehearse. Any rehearsals before this weekend will be up to you to schedule alongside your actors. This performance will be the world premiere of John Kinsella's new VERSE play, for which a book is being published. There may be the opportunity for the cast and creative team on board with this first production to be published within the book.

As the director, you will be responsible for arranging auditions, casting and rehearsing actors for the performance. However, as the show is to be script-in-hand (the actors won't need to learn their lines off by heart - although they will need to be familiar with them), it will be far less time-commitment heavy than a typical show. We are expecting some simple movement staging, with some slightly more in-depth character and speech work to convey the play's story through its sometimes complex linguistic style.

No previous directing experience is necessary - just the enthusiasm and dedication to see an important project through to completion. Please email Ruby at rkm39 to apply, citing any previous or relevant experience, and why you feel you would be the right person to direct this performance.

Please email Ruby Morris (rkm39) to see an extract from the script before you apply, or if you have any questions whatsoever.

*****

SAMSON:
I praise the poetry of ‘stony wastes’,
I praise the poetry of lush spaces,
I praise the poetry of difference,
I praise poetry of co-existence.

Samson Agonistes is a complex verse play which touches on themes of modern warfare, identity, and the knotty tragedies of global international politics. As a content notice, it touches specifically on the political situation of Israel and Palestine, and contains discussion of gender. Kinsella dedicates the play "to Amir Or, Omar Sakr and Tracy Ryan, and for Israel and Palestine and lasting peace and equality in all things".

Deadline: Monday 3rd September 6:00pm
