Open Call for Actresses – WEIGHT by Jan Sims


This one act play contains 3 scenes between 3 different pairs of women (played by 2 actors). A video chat between two women on opposite ends of the weight spectrum, a heated argument over parenting styles in a dance studio, and a bride-to-be’s fantastical interaction with a mermaid. Each scene centres around different complications regarding women’s body issues and their place within society. This play has been workshopped through the Tinkerspace Play Labs program, and will be a feminist examination of the way weight and body image affect women and their interactions with the world.

Weight is to be performed at TAP Center for Creativity March 5-7th 2020. Just in time for International Women’s Day!
