What: SIFF Catalyst First Draft live script table read series, now in its fourth year, features unproduced scripts that were finalists in the 2016 Catalyst Screenplay Competition.
This month we’re proud to present Richard Willet’s THE FLID SHOW: A charismatic, belligerent English nightclub singer, born with flipper-like arms because his pregnant mother took the drug thalidomide, believes his deformity will keep him from ever finding love — until he falls for a pretty young American doctor, with intimacy issues of her own, and must confront his own dark past in order to win her.
We’re looking for a minimum of ELEVEN actors. SIX FEMALE and FIVE MALE. Ages range from early teens to mid 50s.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested. The table read is unpaid but all performers will receive FOUR SIFF MOVIE PASSES.
