Resource Centre for the Arts Theatre Company
is casting 1 role for a showcase presentation of Dedication, a new play by Edward Riche, directed by Charlie Tomlinson (in partnership with the Arts and Culture Centres).
On July 1, 1924 Field Marshall Douglas Haig*, Commander of the British Expeditionary Force in World War I comes to St. John’s to dedicate the National War Memorial. Haig is obliged to submit to an interview by a young local journalist, Miss Drover, a suffragette and nurse to a brother horribly wounded, mentally, spiritually and physically in the war. These three characters cannot but come to debate and disagree about the causes of the World War and its consequences, about colonialism and capitalism, about patriotism and duty, about the horrors of the past and the hopes for the future, about modernity itself.
We are looking for an actress to play the following role:
Miss Geraldine Drover, 25 years old. A very modern woman in 1924, recently returned from Berlin and dressed in a similar style to Sylvia Von Harden in Otto Dix’s painting (see photo below):
