M6 Theatre Company are currently casting for CROSSING THE LINE written and directed by Parvez Qadir

Researched with young people in the North West, Crossing the Line is one of a series of single voice plays commissioned by M6 Theatre Company. These powerful contemporary stories, told through intimate, emotionally-charged performances, share the pressures young characters face at difficult moments in their lives.

We are looking to cast a highly skilled, emotionally intelligent actor who values work for young audiences aged 13+ to join us in the delivery of this award winning strand of M6’s work with a playing age of 18-24.

Ethnicity: British Pakistani, Indian, Bangladeshi.

The actor must have enough sensitivity to grasp the complexity of the issues presented in the monologue, coupled with sufficient maturity to work in role during the hot seating session/facilitated workshop that follows the performance.

Imran/ Immy

Imran is headstrong and from 12yrs old, has grown ever more distant from his dad.

He has the charm & charisma to make him a natural leader. He’ll do anything for his younger brother (Haroon) – lavish him with clothes, trainers and phones as he pushes him to make something of his life.

Imran fell in with the wrong crowd and has been groomed by older adults to run drugs for them. They made him feel special & valued, but he’s learning that it was all a lie. He’s expendable, and he’s trapped.

Does he go against the gang he works for and try to protect his little brother from the same fate as him or does he cross a line?

DATES:

Deadline for submissions: Monday 7th January 2019

Auditions: Thursday 24th January at M6 Studio Theatre, Rochdale, with Gilly Baskeyfield (AD) & Parvez Qadir. (Writer & Director)

Tour: 5th March – 29th March 2019 into Rochdale Secondary Schools.

The monologue will also be filmed during the final week of the contract to provide a high quality, digital resource for schools and professionals to use with young people to support safeguarding.
