The Faux-Real Theatre Company, a New York based ensemble is seeking six actors for their August, Yellow Springs production of Sophocles’ OEDIPUS REX (translation by Robert Fagles). Antioch College will be presenting the show which is a collaboration between the Faux-Real Theatre Company and the Nonstop Institute of Yellow Springs. The show will combine eight New York based actors from The Faux-Real Theatre Company with six local actors from Yellow Springs and the neighboring areas.
Rehearsals will be from Friday, August 13th – Thursday August 19th. Most of the rehearsals will be in the evening although there may be one or two daytime rehearsals. The performances will be on August 20th, 21st and 22nd, 6:00 PM at the Antioch College Amphitheater.

The Faux-Real Theatre Company is a not-for-profit ensemble that has been creating theatre in New York City and the neighboring areas since 1994. Shows created by Faux-Real have included William Shakespeare’s Haunted House (which ran seasonally in NYC for 10-years) FUNBOX (which ran throughout NYC for 2 years), The Tinderbox (which was performed in playgrounds throughout NYC over the course of two summers) and Htebcam (a backwards reincarnation of Macbeth). Faux-Real‘s style of performance is extremely physical and combines classic theatre techniques with elements of modern experimental theatre.

If you are interested in being in the show, please contact Mark Greenfield at fauxrealtheatre@aol.com or at 917.687.4998. We are interested in working with actors of all experience levels, so if you are excited by the prospect of trying something new, but don’t have a lot of experience, we are still interested in hearing from you. If possible, please email a photo of yourself along with either a resume or a short list of any theatrical experience you may have had. No payment or fees involved.
