Oldham Coliseum theatre are seeking an experienced, collaborative Sound Designer to work alongside director Chris Lawson to deliver the Sound for ‘Blue / Orange’. They are particularly interested in meeting with designers from under-represented backgrounds in the arts industry.
Blue / Orange will run at Oldham Coliseum Febuary 17 – 5 March. Rehearsals commence: 24 January, 2022.
About Blue / Orange: Christopher has been sectioned to the psychiatric ward for a month and is excited to be going home… until an orange throws his diagnosis into question. His doctor wants to section him indefinitely, the senior consultant thinks it’s a question of culture, and besides – they need the beds.
Over 24 hours their power struggle explodes into an intense and darkly funny exploration of institutional racism, ethics and mental health. Penned by Joe Penhall (Sunny Afternoon, Mindhunter) Blue/Orange won the Olivier Award, The Critics Circle Award and the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.
Please send a cover letter & CV to producer Hannah Ellis Ryan: [email protected] The application deadline for this vacancy is Friday 22nd October 2021 at 12:00pm.
Applicants they would like to invite to interview will meet with Chris Lawson over zoom or in person.
