Casting for a Unique Adaptation of a Classical Greek Tragedy (Boston, MA)

An Emerson student film production is looking for talented actors and actresses for its neoclassical gothic adaptation of Euripedes’ Medea.

Guaranteed screening at local venues and will be submitted to festivals as a segment of a student-directed greek myth anthology (much like in the format of Paris Je’taime)

In need of two lead roles:

MEDEA (29)
distinctly foreign, intelligent and charismatic woman who is socially isolated from her husband’s culture and community – She has the capacity to love and sacrifice for love but upon her husband’s betrayal she plans for the ultimate revenge.

JASON (29)
a renoun ambitious hero who left his wife to marry another for power. Has the inherent ability to seem down-to-earth and charming, but his greed, ego, and inconsiderate actions lead to devastating consequences.

Supporting Roles (nonspeaking):

SON (2)
Medea and Jason’s angelic looking child. He has one voiceover line and the actor will NOT be involved in any violence during the shoot.

MEDEA’S FATHER (40-60)

KING (40-60)

CERUSA – JASON’S NEW WIFE (20-35)

MEDEA’S BROTHER (20-35)

Extras:

Celebration Hall guests

Guards (3)

Midwives(4)

Dead enemies (5)
