When two starkly different Somerset residents - a non-binary, female-assigned 20-something and a 60-something cis-gendered man - are both early to attend a local meeting in a village hall they quickly find themselves at odds with one another’s world views after the 20-something discloses that they are non-binary.

Wanted

Female Actor
(Female, 50 to 80 years old)

Role status:

Will close on 30 July, 2022

In return for:

Money, fee to be discussed

Location:

Based in Langport, United Kingdom

What I require from the actor:



Lorraine is anywhere from 50-80 years of age, Female, Any Race. The actor must be able to portray/give off a very conservative look and feel. This is a micro-short so there is only a small amount of time to get this across with this character. Think Imelda Staunton, Penelope Wilton, Maggie Smith. I would like to play around with Lorraine’s response to Sam-He’s final outburst - trying different reactions possibly with an ad-libbed line at the end, so I need an actor who is comfortable with improv, trying a variety of things and up for having fun with it.

More about the character:

An acquaintance of main character Sam-He’s for many years, Lorraine is a staple of the village, a go-to person to help and get involved with any and all village activity. She’s very conservatively minded and presented. A little bit of a busy-body and somewhat of a gossip, yet easily offended by others.

Alongside Sam-He, Lorraine was supposed to arrive early to help set up the meeting but turns up unusually late. She is instantly intrigued by Sam-They, someone she’s never seen before.
