Casanova Dreaming intimate scenes

Candidates for audition should be aware that this play involves sexual language and intimate scenes between performers. There is no nudity (one male actor may be bare-chested) or simulated sexual intercourse, but play directions include (a) placing a hand on the breast of a performer of the opposite sex, (b) placing a hand between the legs of a performer of the opposite sex, (c) intimate kissing and caressing. Rehearsals will include sessions that allow all performers to be comfortable in these situations, with each other and in front of an audience and guidelines will be established to ensure that personal boundaries are not broken either in rehearsal or away from it. Intimate scenes will not form part of the audition or callback process.
All aspects of Casanova Dreaming and Volpone (rehearsal spaces, venues, publicity, payment to performers etc) are fully funded. The cast of each play will elect a representative to ensure contracts are adhered to and working conditions are acceptable.
