Audition Location: Virtual

Artemisia Theatre is currently accepting virtual submissions for our Fall production (title TBA), directed by Myesha-Tiara. Audition materials can be found here.

Synopsis: When racism and oppression manifest in a scary, physical form, a social media influencer and a boots-on-the-ground activist form a complex bond of friendship to help each other survive. The play, first drafted in workshop with the Humanitas Play L.A. Prize, explores the effects of a never-ending barrage of trauma on the women who are continually looked at to lead a movement of resistance and change. What happens when there’s no more outside space for the growing monster that is American racism?

In-person callbacks will be July 1st (time and location TBA).
