BELVOIR DOWNSTAIRS THEATRE

25A Auditions

We’re accepting video submissions for Slaughterhouse by Anchuli Felicia King from now until March 1st, 2019.

About The Play

Something unspeakable happens at an ethical eating startup. Five people give their accounts of why it happened. Bianca, the social media manager, developed a macabre addiction; Josh, the CTO, had a drug-induced vision; Sasha, the CFO, lost $80,000 in an email exchange; Hannah, the boss, was a total work of art; and DJ, well, he’s just DJ. But who is telling the truth, who is telling their version of the truth, and who is evading the question?

Slaughterhouse is the world premiere production of an experimental text. For more information or to book tickets, click here.
