Summer Vacation

Questing Voles will once again be making our way Fringe-wards this summer, and we'd love to have you along! The show this year is ‘Everyone Dies At The End’, a musical comedy about the apocalypse, modified from a previous Oxford run. We're going to be in Edinburgh from the 22nd-30th August, performing in TheSpaceUk Niddry Street Upper.

Questing Voles runs on a subscription / profit-share basis, and whilst we don’t know the exact sum yet, it’ll be comparable to the last couple of years at around £360-380 for all your travel, accommodation, food, booze, etc. At the end of the Fringe, if all goes well you will get back between £20-120 depending on ticket sales.

More information about auditions will be sent on completion of the sign up form and you will be given your audition time by the 29th April.

    TAWUSAN: Read-through

    18:00, Tue 30th June 2020 at Online Venue
    Summer Vacation

    TAWUSAN Read-Through
    Attention to all BAME theatre lovers who want something to do over the summer holidays!
    TAWUSAN is a show about a group of indigenous Buryat Mongolians and the ways in which they are impacted by the Cultural Revolution in Inner Mongolia. Based loosely on the true story of the writer's family, TAWUSAN traces the impacts of the revolution and colonialism on these individuals and how it impacts them as they enter the new millennium. TAWUSAN is a visceral, vibrant and violent exploration of what it means to be part of such a vilified community that continues to be deprived of their rights and dignity. This idea is particularly pertinent to the writer's own experience, considering that she only recently discovered how rooted her family history is in violence and bloodshed.
    A read through will be performed in June on a virtual platform to test out how people respond to the intensity of the play's themes, whether the audience understands the complex and specific historical contexts informing the script, and whether this kind of play can be performed in the first place.

    I am looking for a group of East Asian actors to bring this show to life! No experience is necessary, and it will be a fairly relaxed and low commitment role perfect for anyone new to Cambridge theatre, as long as you have access to facetime or any other messaging device! Once we settle on a date (preferably June or even May), we can perform the read through via an online platform and collect people's thoughts and feedback afterwards. If you are interested in participating in this read through, which will hopefully lead to a live performance in Cambridge at some point, then please contact me at tb616@cam.ac.uk for more details.

    Content Warning: the history of the Mongolian people in Inner Mongolia is one of prolonged and horrific suffering. Please be aware that the script won't be shying away from depicting these acts of atrocities, so bear that in mind when applying for these roles.

      Contact tb616@cam.ac.uk before Mon 20th Apr, 01:00 for more details.
