We are excited to announce the cast and crew of our upcoming show, FOX. This new adaptation of Ben Jonson’s Volpone transforms a classical comedy into a contemporary courtroom drama: Celia, a young woman unjustly put on trial, struggles to be heard amidst a society determined to silence her. Directed by Kathryn McCormack and brought to life by this fantastic team (with help from our wonderful season sponsor Websavers!), FOX strives to remedy a centuries-old and all-too-contemporary injustice.
FOX will run from February 20-24 at Dalhousie’s Weldon Law Building. Check back soon for information on tickets!
The Villains are looking for non-union actors of all genders for our winter production of FOX.
FOX is a new work by Dan Bray with Kathryn McCormack and Colleen MacIsaac, a subversion and reimaginging of Ben Jonson’s ‘Volpone’. This site-specific work turns a classical comedy into a contemporary courtroom drama, exploring the hardships that have and continue to face women who come forward in sexual assault cases.
Auditions will run Sunday January 6th. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and headshot to sign up for a slot. We ask that you prepare a classical monologue, and you may be asked to read sides. Rehearsals would run mid-January till Feb 19, for a run February 20-24 at the Weldon Law Building at Dalhousie.
