Third Culture Theatre is holding auditions for their upcoming summer production, A FAIR TRADE. The production is inspired by Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, and conceived and written by Vanessa Gubbins. The production is being devised by Gubbins and the cast in rehearsal, so actors should be comfortable workshopping new material, as well as exploring and generating new material as the rehearsal process progresses. 

We are holding open auditions. There are no set requirements for characters regarding age, race, gender, etc. Previous experience in devised theatre not necessary.

Rehearsals begin July 9th

Preview, August 16th; Open August 17th, Perform August 18th, 19th, 24th, 25th, 26th*
*Planned New Haven (CT) Tour after the LA run closes, more details available at auditions.

About the Show:

A FAIR TRADE presents a world confronted by a sudden, radical demand: non-violent, fair
paying jobs ensuring global economic freedom available to all persons worldwide, or the
immediate and permanent end of reproduction. Faced with the prospect of a humanity without
future, what would the world look like? How could does life continue with the knowledge we may
soon be the last generation? Is humanity worth sustaining if for so many life is virtually unlivable?
Mixing dark comedy with drama, this piece challenges audiences to consider what they’re willing
to sacrifice for a better world.


Third Culture is always looking for new artists to bring into our fold. While preference is given to artists whose work we know, if you are interested in working with us we'd love to get to know your work! If you are a playwright, director, designer, or stage manager interested in working with Third Culture, please send relevant materials (résumé, link to portfolio, script samples, etc.)  to, and please let us know when we can come and see your work in person!
