All are welcome to audition for GEDS' third production of the 2018-2019 season. Performance dates are March 19-23, 2019 at Théâtre de l'Espérance in Eaux-Vives.
Click here for the full audition notes from director Rick Vincent.
A play where vanity trumps love, and sex is weapon number one, Les Liaisons Dangereuses will be staged as a period piece in English just before the French Revolution. The Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil have a special relationship: they share each other’s darkest secrets. Once lovers, they have presently accepted that each is beyond love, and now communicate unabashedly to one another intimate details of their conquests and sordid relationships.
The audition will be a cold reading from the script. We welcome all demographics interested to attend and no specific accents are required. The director is looking for 4 male and 6 female roles plus servants. Actors can read several roles.
GEDS encourages everyone to audition for its shows at all levels of experience. Our directors are looking for people who bring their own unique life experiences to the role. Mother tongue and nationality need not prevent you being cast; even age or gender can sometimes be flexible according to the needs of the play. GEDS serves a diverse international community and we aspire to reflect that richness in our activities and events.
