National Theatre Wales TEAM are putting together an educational package to support the WJEC A Level text “The Radicalisation of Bradley Manning” by Tim Price.
This text is a fictional account of the early years of Chelsea Manning’s life.
NTW TEAM are working with a Trans Creative Consultant on this project, and are making sure that the educational package includes a large discussion about trans rights and how to approach staging trans stories.
NTW TEAM are looking for TWO trans or non-binary actors to read and interpret sections of the text, and deliver their thoughts to camera. We particularly encourage participants from underrepresented backgrounds. The actors will be supported by the Trans Consultant, and paid a fee of £100 for their time, to include planning and the interview itself.
NTW recognise the nuanced conversations that surround this text, and want to pay homage to Chelsea’s life by having this text be used as an educational tool in schools and colleges.
If you’re interested in taking part, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know why you would like to be involved.
