Open auditions will be held to cast Fa'alavelave "The Interruption" by Kiki Rivera. The show will be directed by Reiko Ho and runs November 7 - December 8, 2019.
Kiki Rivera's contemporary dramatic comedy tackles a darkly taboo topic with humor in a queer Samoan context.
Sefina and Mele are in love, their engagement and deep bond is reinforced by their shared Samoan heritage. When they suddenly find themselves tangled in a web of hidden truths, denial and lies, their future together is threatened.
Director Reiko Ho is looking for actors to fill the following roles.
Mele - Early 30's mixed-race Samoan woman
Sefina- Early 30's mixed-race Samoan woman
Pina - Early 60's Samoan woman
Samaria- Early-mid 50's Samoan woman
Fa'afafine* / Hercules - Mid-late 40's Samoan Man
Malosi - Mid-late 40's Samoan Man
*Note: A fa’afafine is a male-bodied person who lives life as a female.
All actors should be familiar with the script, which can be found here.
