Something Something Theatre: Audition - actress age 50+


From: Something Something Theatre <>
Sent: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 6:00 PM
Subject: Audition notice




Something Something Theatre is looking for an actress age 50+ to portray the author Patricia Highsmith in their production of 'Switzerland,' by Joanna Murray-Smith, running April 25 - May 12.  Rehearsals begin in early or mid-March.


This role is an actor's dream.


Auditions will be held on February 3rd at 6 PM, at 3202 E. Waverly St. (near Country Club and Pima).  Please bring a headshot and resume, and be prepared to do cold readings from the script.  Contact director Whitney at: or 520.780.7071
with any further questions.


'Switzerland' is a critically acclaimed, darkly comedic thriller, speculating on the final days of Highsmith's life.  It has never before been produced in Tucson and we are so excited to bring it to the stage!


Author Patricia Highsmith hates everyone and just wants to be left alone. An emissary from her publisher arrives to beg her to write one more sequel to The Talented Mr. Ripley…and he turns out to be more than a match for her iron will.

"Switzerland is arguably Murray-Smith's best play yet, and certainly one of her most entertaining. The playwright's familiar strong suits: her barbed wit and effortless gift for verbal sparring, her feminist lens...combine to form an unbeatable hand. Whether you're a mad Highsmith fan, or you've never heard of her, you'll be chilled and gripped, amused and seduced by this pitch-perfect psychological thriller."

"Murray-Smith's witty two-hander morphs into a larger study of death and the end of imagining...a diverting, scintillating duel with words and small daggers."

Mission: The mission of Strada Company is to support and create access, innovation, entrepreneurship, and excellence in the visual, media, and performing arts.



Strada Company welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. Our community is based on mutual respect, tolerance, and encouragement, and we are working to help each other live up to these principles. We want our community to be more diverse: whoever you are, and whatever your background, we welcome you.


We have created this diversity statement because we believe that a diverse arts community is stronger and more vibrant. A diverse culture where people treat each other with respect has more potential contributors and more sources of ideas. It is, in short, a better world.


Although we have phrased the formal diversity statement generically to make it all-inclusive, we recognize that there are specific attributes that are used to discriminate against people. In alphabetical order, some of these attributes include (but are not limited to): age, culture, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical or mental difference, politics, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and subculture. We welcome people regardless of the values of these or other attributes.


As diversity can often be passive, Strada Company seeks to engage, exhort, enjoin, and empower the wide and amazing array of human-created performance. Our diversity statement is not merely a policy; it is what we are.

Strada Company creates and supports art in a variety of communities and for a myriad of reasons. We are open to all.
