Magpie is a seven-minute short comedy.
Logline: When threatened by her boss for her mismatched socks, a demure young woman tests her boundaries by finding new and fabulous forms of self expression in her wardrobe.
We are casting for the role of Linda (boss) and looking for a volunteer actor (preferably late 20s to mid 30s) to play a condescending authority figure who likes to think she is friends with her staff. Linda implements workplace rules, but doesn’t take responsibility for unfair decisions. She is very black and white, for fear of the grey area. Linda is not a great problem solver, but manages people in a way she finds reassuring in terms of her own position. She represents what Maggie will leave behind.
This is an unpaid role on a student production.
Shooting dates: Thursday 11 and Friday 12 June.
