There are multiple roles for the following plays:
by Jean Anouilh, translated by Lewis Galantière Based on the play by Sophocles
Antigone is arguably the greatest tragedy in Western drama. Drawn from the extended story of Oedipus and his family from Greek mythology, the heroine of the title was first given her own play by the ancient Grecian playwright Sophocles.
Since then, the tale of her fateful act of civil disobedience – burying the body of her slain brother Polynices against the orders of her uncle, King Creon – has inspired countless retellings in theatre, opera, art and cinema. In Western cultural iconography, Antigone is a symbol of rebellion – a brave young woman willing to die for what she believed was right, determined to uphold moral and spiritual laws, and loyalty to family, over the edicts of a despotic system.

THE SEASON AT SARSAPARILLA
by Patrick White
Three families, the Boyles, the Pogsons and the Knotts. Three families brewing in the hot Aussie sun, cooking and hoping, dreaming and laughing, fighting themselves and each other as they live each day willing change and dreading it at the same time. Meanwhile the dogs bark on and on and on stirred up by the bitch in heat.
Directed by Sonia Zabala
