Non-AEA and AEA actors for roles in Santa Fe Playhouse’s production of Liz Duffy Adams’ BORN WITH TEETH, directed by Antonio Miniño.
Synopsis: An aging ruler, an oppressive police state, a restless polarized people seething with paranoia: it’s a dangerous time for poets. Two of them—the great Kit Marlowe and up-and-comer Will Shakespeare—meet in the back room of a pub to collaborate on a history play cycle, navigate the perils of art under a totalitarian regime, and flirt like young men with everything to lose. One of them may well be the death of the other.
KIT MARLOWE: Black, Indigenous, Latiné, POC; 20s-40s; Masc Presenting; Queer; Feral-Pretty; Wildly Charismatic. Experience in classical theater is preferred but not required. Iconoclastic, punk-edged; aggressive pacing. Experience with hand-to-hand stage combat is preferred but not required. Physically able to jump on top of chairs, tables. New England or British Dialect. Actor need not resemble the actual Marlowe. Essential Intimacy Requirements: Lip-to-lip extended contact (kissing), embracing, nudity above the waist. A qualified professional will choreograph all fights and intimacy.
