<span style=”color: #2a2a2a;”>Seeking: 4 women, 4 men (gender flexible), Non-Equity. We are looking for actors of all races, nationalities, genders, ages and abilities.
The Blind, written in 1890, is one of the earliest plays written by Belgian symbolist playwright Maurice Maeterlinck. Its protagonists, a group of unnamed, sightless individuals, have been abandoned in the wilderness by their caretaker, and are forced to reckon with the unfamiliar. Severed of their agency, enveloped in nature’s unforgiving forces, they are left alone with only their language to make sense of their surroundings.
Auditions will take place:
Thursday, March 30, 2017 from 7:30pm to 10pm
Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 10am to 2pm
Callbacks will be on Monday, April 3, 2017 from 7pm to 9:30pm.
Auditions will consist of a monologue of your choice, not to exceed two minutes. They will take place at the Emergence Community Arts Collective at 733 Euclid St NW, Washington, DC 20001.
Please send resume and headshot (or a good recent photo of yourself) to TheWheelTheatreCompany@gmail.com with any questions and to sign up for a 5-minute audition slot (please provide three times that work for you). If you can’t make the auditions but would like to be considered, e-mail us and we’ll work something out!

<span style=”color: #2a2a2a;”>NOTE: While these characters have names such as “First Blind Man” and “Second Blind Woman,” they may not necessarily be played by that gender. When the show is cast, the text of the script will be changed to reflect the gender that each performer identifies with.
Actors will be paid a small stipend. </span>
