Audition Notice: Bull

  • 30 July 2020
As part of WILD RICE’s new residency programme for emerging theatre directors, we are staging Mike Bartlett’s critically acclaimed Bull.

Directed by Victoria Chen, Bull is a play about vicious office politics. Three youngish business people – Tony, Isobel and Thomas – are waiting to find out which of them will lose their job. As they await the arrival of their boss, Carter, to deliver the verdict, the trio debate one another’s chances of survival. For alpha male Tony and calculating Isobel, it’s clear that Thomas will be the one to go. But, in the struggle for survival, no blow is too low.

Saturday, 8 August 2020 (12 – 5pm)
Thursday, 13 August 2020 (Callbacks, 10am – 1pm)

Rehearsals: October 2020

Bump-in/Shows: 2 to 7 November 2020

Casting Details
We are casting for professional actors to play the following roles:

A man in his 30s, average size and build, and not someone you naturally gravitate towards. He is the co-worker who generally keeps to himself, and never goes out for drinks with the rest, because he prioritises his career over interpersonal relationships. He is determined to keep his job, and believes that, if he keeps his head down and does his best, things will work out eventually.

A woman in her late 20s to early 30s. Lithe, brilliant and athletic, she thrives in the corporate world. She is highly intelligent, ambitious, and not afraid to wield her femininity as a weapon. To her, nothing is off-limits when she sets her sights on what she wants.

A man in his late 20s to early 30s. He’s confident, masculine, desirable and knows it. He is the alpha male and incredibly fit. Competent and charismatic, he is a man who wants it all and will go out of his way to have it all.

If you are able to commit to the above schedule, please email with your CV (in pdf), a recent headshot and the subject header “Bull (your name)” by Tuesday, 4 August 2020.

Please note that only shortlisted applicants will be contacted.

Thank you.
