Seeking local New Mexico talent for Santa Fe Playhouse’s outdoor live performance “Wild Game” – a 17 minute scene pulled from Reykjavik by playwright Steve Yockey.

Performances will take place outdoors on June 25th, June 26th, and June 27th. Exact locations and times TBD. 

Actors will also be asked to do two outdoor fundraising event performances,  dates to be determined by actor availability and event dates. 

All performances are outdoors under the open sky. 

Santa Fe Playhouse’s work is enriched by the myriad of lived experiences of the actors, crew, and administrative personnel that make our shows possible. We believe that a cast and production team which exemplifies diversity of race, cultural origin, and gender expression is imperative to bringing a show alive for a diverse audience. All roles are open to members of any racial/cultural background. LGBTQ+ performers are particularly encouraged to audition.

To ensure the safety of our company and audiences from COVID-19, we will follow all CDC and New Mexico guidelines, along with Equity approved protocols throughout the production period. The rehearsal process will take place outside at parks or at the Santa Fe Playhouse | 142 East DeVargas Street.

Actors are encouraged to feel positively about devising work and feel comfortable with movement, dance, and immersive outdoor performance. 

The play takes place in and around Reykjavík, Iceland. All of the locations are ephemeral places, transitory, the kind of  places people pass through or stop to rest but do not stay for long.


Valerie: (F: 18 – 38) Gun-shy about love, always on the move. Experienced waitress. Has been working at the bar for a few weeks now. From somewhere in the States. Only moves forward. 

Ingrid: (F: 18 – 38) Upbeat and chill. Has lots of jobs. New to the bar. From somewhere else. Graceful.  Actors auditioning must have a strong ear for accent work.
