Winner of the Robert Bone, Jr. Memorial Award, Motherland examines the search for salvation in an apocalyptic, dystopian world, with distinct Texan and Mexican music and cultural influences.

Desperate to escape a deadly and hostile landscape, unlikely companions Pearl and Annie are pitched together as they travel toward a beacon of hope, a place they know only through folklore and legend, the Motherland.

Called by the song of La Andadora (She Who Walks), Pearl and Annie encounter a number of colorful, strange and unusual characters in their journey of hope and survival.

18 to 24 roles – gender, age and race-fluid – are available for actors. The play also calls for musicians with skills in classical/acoustic guitar, percussion, and/or woodwinds.

Spanish speaking actors are encouraged to apply. Some roles may be double-cast.

Those auditioning will need to provide information about any conflicts during the rehearsal period. Headshots and resumes are not required, but would be appreciated. Upon acceptance of roles, contracts and releases will be required.

Crew positions are also available.

Executive Producer is Sean Allen Jones. Producer is Jamison Driskill. The EDGE is a Texas nonprofit corporation and a member of the American Association of Community Theatres (AACT).
