Casting Culture: A Discussion on Staging Race & Casting Practices
Casting for theatre comes with a multitude of challenges, one of them being casting race. Is it vital to cast actors that are the same race as the character? How are actors of ambiguous ethnicity cast? Is ethnicity as important as race? References to Salvador Dalí Make Me Hot presented itself with a few such challenges and Single Carrot Theatre invites the audience to ask questions, raise voices, and discuss one of the most pressing issues in theatre today.
