Greetings Family and Friends, please read the very detailed and descriptive casting notice and share with people you might think would be interested in this project.
Boys that Pray is a play about masculine women/folks of color who identify with or whose lived experience reflects that of the transgendered community in their gender presentation. The play tackles issues of masculine voices within the feminist/womanist movement and the lives of those who live under the margin of where the LGBTQ/Queer community conducts all their policy change and equal rights agendas.
This is a soul-filled piece on surviving, being examples of surviving and maintaining sanity in an exclusive world where boys that pray are prey to intolerance and close-mindedness. This piece is dedicated to the unspoken emotion attached to the forgotten bodies in this battle to live wholly and holy in society. Just because “he” is used a lot does not mean that these are boys who consider themselves transgendered. This play is having its staged reading on August 7th.

Dr. Brownbird – (any ethnicity) age 25-45. Must be strong actor to handle playing “older” regardless of actual age. Must also be able to speak like David Attenborough.
The Holy Trinidad:
Diggy – Any tone of black/brown skin. The poet, the romantic, the one who craves to be with the boys as a place of refuge.
Davin – Person of Color. The eldest of the crew. He is silent for the most part with his thought process, is direct in his way of being in this world and battles seeing “appearing to be strong” and “striving to be communicative” as polar opposites.
Ducky – Light or Lighter shade of brown/black skin, but not white passing. The youngest of the crew. He is lighthearted and loves going to the club.
This doesn’t even mention what country it’s in.
Signal boost and all, but you need a bit more relevant information here.
