About Man High
Man High is a love story exploring what happens when people from marginalised groups connect. In the heat of awful abuse on the estate where he lives, Able, a wheelchair user, dreams of flying to the moon. As he plans his ascent, a woman desperate for sanctuary arrives on his doorstep, just as a shopping trolley is thrown through his window. Abel and Su are forced together, their circumstances demanding they remove all façade and are honest with each other. Their hidden pasts unfold as this beautiful story of connection is told.
The piece is a two hander, with each actor playing a main character and multi-rolling other characters.
Who We Are Looking For
We are looking for an experienced actor who is a trans woman. We are ideally looking for someone who understands disability equality. Andrew McLay is a disabled actor, writer and director and has developed this script from a mix of personal experience, and research with trans women. The piece looks at unity through experiences of exclusion. We are interested to hear from South East Asian Trans Women Actors and welcome all applications.
About the Job
As well as workshopping the current draft of the script, we will invite feedback and comment on the character. There are three 2.5 hour zoom sessions, also requiring your own work outside sessions, provisionally scheduled for 24, 25 and 28 January 2022.
Fee & Details
The fee is £375.00 inclusive and is freelance – workshops will take place on zoom, so somewhere quiet to work undisturbed, a laptop or computer rather than a phone, and a good internet connection are essential.
