AN AUDIENCE WITH SUZUKI-SAN ...

The following advertisement appeared in the Classified Ads. section of the theatrical magazine:

(Biggleswade Edition), Sunday, June 31st, 2008

 

[Reprinted with Permission]


MARSH-GAS PRODUCTIONS


Now casting their Winter 2008/Spring 2009 International tour of:
'Usui Te-ate - an Audience with Suzuki-san'
[An innovative fantasy in no way inspired by the teachings of Mikao Usui]


We require:
1 highly talented character actress for the Lead Role of 'Ancient Tendai Nun' (playing age 113 - 114yrs)

Successful applicant will undergo 2 weeks intensive tuition on the finer points of the 'Usui Te-ate' story, and also receive training in a mish-mash of esoteric practices from diverse Japanese traditions.

However, strong improvisational skills are also required.
Will be playing to small intimate gatherings of carefully selected (and high fee paying) students
[No note-taking, cameras or recording devices permitted]


Initial Contract dates:
12th December - 31st March 2009 with possibility of short extension.*

Excellent salary
Superb on-tour accommodation
- authentic Tendai Nun's robes also provided.

PLEASE NOTE:
We can only consider applicants who are (or appear to be) aged 100 years or over, as role calls for close interaction with audience, thus precluding the use of heavy makeup & prosthetics

Applicants must also:
be native Japanese speakers,
read and write old-style (i.e. pre-WWII) Japanese,
be familiar with the major historical events of Taisho era Japan,
and possess a detailed and convincing knowledge of the day-to-day lifestyle of a Tendai Buddhist nun.

[A creative flair for inventing pseudo-Japanese meditative practices would not go amiss either]

 

Contact Details:

Please send a letter of introduction, CV, photo and large self-addressed envelope to: 'C' at Marsh-Gas Productions, P.O. BOX 37, 1182 Oil Drum Lane, South Walpley, N.E. Whare, UK

______

* Applicants should be aware that, due to the nature of the production, there will come a time when it will be necessary to finally 'kill off' the character of the aged nun** (and, contrary to rumours presently 'doing the rounds' in theatrical circles, no, there are no plans to use the Conan Doyle 'Reichenbach Falls / Adventure of the Empty House' ploy - in order to bring the character back from the dead at a later date)

** as occurred recently to the character of the nun 'Mariko-obaasan' in the rival stage production "Usui-do - the Musical"
