Ambassador Theater is holding a casting call for three plays: The Third Breast by Ireneusz Iredynski, Protest by Vaclav Havel, and Dyskolos by Menander. The plays will be produced at Mead Theater Lab at Flashpoint and at the George Washington Masonic Memorial Theater;

The Third Breast: Performances: July 10 – August 4, 2013 Thursdays-Sundays at Mead Theater Lab at FLASPOINT
Ewa– a woman, leader, attractive
George– Good looking young male, (27-40s) singer and preferably guitar player
Thomas– An Older Man, late 30s-40s and up
The Third Breast is a classic example of one of Iredynski’s favorite scenarios in which human weaknesses, insecurities and obsessions paired up with power, lead to manipulation, cruelty and violence. The play invites us into a closed, almost cult like community of nature lovers, whose charismatic spiritual leader, Ewa, unexpectedly grows a third breast and unable to have it removed, becomes depressed and unsure of her future leadership ability. After failed suicide attempt she manipulates her closest allies, a commune founder Thomas and her new lover George, into killing two community members who know her secret and as such pose a threat to her leadership status. George gains Ewa’s total trust by playing a key role in the “accidental” killings, and as her favorite and only lover, begins to feel his growing power. What follows makes the plot even more unexpected and shocking…

Protest: October 2013
2 Male and 2 female actors: young and older
In Protest we meet a dissident on return home from prison, getting involved in a campaign to protest against the government by getting people to sign a petition calling for a change in the way things are done in his country. In our version, the two male characters will also have counter characters echoed in 2 females. One character is the protesting artist who suffered for his beliefs, the other a compromising
and compromised playwright. The play was written in the 1970′s by acclaimed human rights activist and the first president of the Czech Republic.

Dyskolos: December/January 2013/2014
We are casting young Female/Male actors, movement/flexibility is a plus, acting in masks ability
A wealthy young man falls in love at first sight with a beautiful, but poor farmer’s daughter. The only thing that stands in the way of their happiness is the woman’s violent, misanthropic father. This play will be performed in an updated mask style drawing upon such diverse influences as Ancient Greek, Commedie Francaise, and The Three Stooges. Experience with physical acting, masks, pantomime and classical text are all helpful skills.

Prepare one/two monologues: one dramatic, one comedic
Bring your photo/resume and be ready to move and read from the scripts !
