RASA Productions is holding auditions for The Coolie Odyssey, a new dramatic work by award -winning playwright Rajesh Gopie. The play, to be directed by Tina Johnson (A Coloured Place, Out of Bounds) is a bold and exciting venture requiring professional, multi-skilled performers and is supported by the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown. The scenographer is Andrew Verster and lighting is by British designer Jason Ions. Performances are in July 2002.

Auditions will be held at the Ridge Park College on April 12 April from 15h00 and April 6 from 13h30.

Auditions are opened to any full-time professional performers who consider themselves suitable for the following roles: Males: black man in his late 20ís-mid 30ís, white man in mid to late 30ís, three Indian males between the ages of 15 and 30; Females: three Indian females between mid 20ís and 30ís and two characters/'children that look between 12 and 17 years old (Children wishing to audition must be over ten years of age).

Actors are required to prepare a monologue of any contemporary (preferably South African) text. This must not exceed three minutes and must be performed and not read. Puppetry skills would be an advantage.
