Renowned Live Interpretation performer Andrew Ashmore is casting for the character of a Lascar Dock Worker for a site-specific performance at the Cutty Sark. The tourist attraction in Greenwich is to host a team of characters working at the ship for around three days each month, making this the perfect top-up role of an actor looking for regular work. Here’s a breakdown of the role:
The 1890s Lascar Dock Worker is for a male actor aged 24–44 of South Asian ethnicity. The team will be researching and writing a script for daily 20-minute performances, but the rest of the role requires in-character interactions with visitors.
Research and development starts in December with rehearsals in January 2019 and performances to begin in February 2019.
The role will be paid a flat fee of £400 for rehearsals and development, with £125 per day for performances.
