Open Casting Call- The Dismissal World Premiere
The Dismissal tells the story of Gough Whitlam.
Canberra, November 11th, 1975:
In an unprecedented move, the unelected Governor-General (and representative of the Queen), Sir John Kerr installed leader of the opposition Liberal party Malcolm Fraser as Prime Minister, overthrowing the democratically elected Labor government of Gough Whitlam. This momentous event culminated in the deposed Prime Minister Gough Whitlam declaring on the steps of Parliament House:
“Well, may we say God Save the Queen because nothing will save the Governor-General”.
A Note From The Producers:
Squabbalogic and STC promote an artistic environment that actively seeks to include, welcome, and value the unique contributions of all people. The Dismissal is not a historical re-enactment. While The Dismissal is an interpretation of historical events involving primarily heterosexual, cisgender, Caucasian men – that is not the story we are telling in 2021. The Dismissal uses a true ensemble of 11 artists that intentionally crosses the lines of gender, age, sexuality, ability, and race. For The Dismissal company, we are specifically seeking submissions from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists as well as artists with cultural and linguistically diverse backgrounds. At least two roles require artists with Asian or South Asian heritage. Mature age artists, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, (LGBTQIA+) non-binary, and artists living with a disability are also encouraged to submit – especially Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, and culturally and linguistically diverse artists that also identify as such. Artists of all levels of experience are encouraged to apply.
