Richmond Triangle Players recognizes the troubling history of exclusion in the American theatrical landscape. This production commits to using an identity-conscious casting model. For this reason, we are particularly interested in receiving submissions from historically excluded identities such as actors who identify as part of the Global Majority, BIPOC, and/or persons with disabilities.
Richmond Triangle Players is seeking to fill the following role in THE PINK UNICORN:
TRISHA LEE – A middle aged single mother in a small southern town. She is a fiercely loving and dedicated mom who has never had a reason to question her conservative religious upbringing until her child comes out as gender queer. Though she struggles to make ends meet, she has a charming and comedic sensibility, a positive attitude, and an open heart. She is a courageous champion for her child, in spite of her own struggle with the news and the aggressive pushback and pressure from her community. Seeking all ethnicities to audition. We will also be seeking to cast an understudy to cover this role.
All roles are paid. Equity contracts are not currently available.
ABOUT THE SHOW: Trisha Lee considers herself to be open-minded and accepting, that is, at least compared to the other mothers in her conservative hometown of Sparkton, Texas. But Trisha’s values are called into question when her teenager Jo comes out as genderqueer and attempts to start a Gay Straight Alliance. Faced with opposition from her family, church, and the local high school, Trisha embarks on a journey to meet her child with love. The Pink Unicorn is an award-winning show that traces one mother’s journey from apprehension to tolerance to acceptance.
