Wheat Ridge Theatre Company
Audition for “Information for Foreigners”
by Griselda Gambaro / translated by Marguerite Feitlowitz
Needed 20 actors. Actors of all ages, ethnicities, physical abilities, and sexual orientation are encouraged to apply.
During a period of turmoil and dissatisfaction in the 1970s, Argentina experienced a series of abuse of human rights and a lot of people disappeared. The play presents several examples of how authority can spin out of control in the search of total power. An insightful play which makes audiences realize this keeps happening in different parts of the world at different times.
Audience is divided in four groups guided by a “Guide” and a “Hostess”. Each group watches the different scenes in different order. Actors may repeat the same scene for all four different audiences and then transform into another character.
The show is interactive and some improvisation skills are needed for some characters.
