AUDITIONS FOR "SHEPHERD'

Sun, Jun. 19, 2022 12:00pm — 3:00pm

Auditions for Shepherd, a New Zealand drama directed by Nathan Hey, will be held on Sunday, June 19, from 12pm. Award-winning NZ playwright Gary Henderson brings us this provocative vision of New Zealand, but not the country as we know. In remote, misty and rain-soaked Fiordland, the Shepherd family run their flock, supplying a hungry world. With a contract to fulfil, and a family to shelter, they find the line between humanity and inhumanity becoming dangerously blurred. The play is set in a futuristic New Zealand. It is a daring and exciting play written by the same playwright who brought us Peninsula. This play leads up to a crazy climax and will be truly incredible to bring to the stage. For details of the available roles, rehearsal period and season, see our Auditions page.
