After The Man Presents: Women delighted crowds with an 100% sold-out run in Easter 2017, it was thought that women could never be funny again. Like, by law. But fear not: The Man is back, and he’s here to present even more hilarious ladies in a night of ‘acerbic feminist comedy’ (The Tab).
What happens to the women that men can’t write? In this showcase of Strong Female Characters, Cambridge’s finest lady and non-binary comics will endeavour to find out. Fresh from every screen and stage ever, the cast-offs, the sidekicks, the non-specific love interests and the straight-up plot-devices come together to stick it to The Man. Specifically, one man in particular. Their writer.
With multiple women actually allowed on stage at once, who knows what might happen? We wager it will be something very, very funny.
This is Good Girls, Written Bad(ly).
★★★★½ – The Tab
Further audition information:
Wanted: would-be comics to create a diverse cast of comedy characters, inspired by the shit parts written for women + non binary actors.
Anything goes: as long as you are playing a woman or non-binary character, you can present us with whatever you want. Last year featured a tennis-playing Romance heroine, a drunk documentary maker, and the failed superhero, Girlgirl, to name a few.
AUDITION WITH: around 1 minute of self-written material (if you have more - great! But no more than 5 minutes please). The writing process will be very collaborative so do not worry if you're stuck for ideas. If you are, come to our comedy workshop to brainstorm ideas and get advice from other funny gals. Ultimately, we just want to see people excited to take part in this HYSTERICAL (and a wee bit RADICAL) comedy.
If you have any questions - or even if you're looking for some character inspiration - message Molly on Facebook or email her @ ms2311 AND come along to our COMEDY WORKSHOP on the fine afternoon of the 10th October in the ADC Bar (see FB event for more info on that).
We will also be accepting ***video auditions*** - deadline is 20:00 on 14th October.
Finally, we want to encourage ~all~ sorts of self-defining female and non-binary people to come audition, regardless of ethnicity, ability or theatre/comedy experience.
