Because of this, anyone auditioning must be over the age of 18 and comfortable with these themes. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions regarding the content or other potential triggers.

The Fury Casting Call

Location: Remote

Rate: Minor characters $20 per ep

Deadline: November 30, 2019

Production Start Estimate: Dec 2019 / Jan 2020

After her girlfriend is revealed to be an undercover cop, Alecto, the Boss of the vigilante group “The Fury”, is fighting to make sure her empire doesn’t crumble around her. The Furies recent troubles have put a target on their backs, and it’s up to Alecto and her trusted inner circle to ensure the gang’s empire survives. But in such a tense situation is there also room to love again?

The Fury is a queer fiction audio drama, set in a world that unfairly discriminates against people of color, the queer community, women, the poor, and the disabled. Like we said … fiction. 

The Fury is an upcoming podcast writen and directed by a lesbian woc, Amara Augustine. 

The Fury was written as a cathartic work by a sexual assault survivor, who also happens to be a queer black woman living in today’s society. As such, the story will have a happy ending for all the poc and queer characters, while it severely punishes the perpetrators of heinous crimes. 

The Fury touches on many difficult topics. Please ensure you read all warnings before submission. 

Warnings:

cursing, violence, alcohol use, gun use / violence, hospitals, mentions of death and murder, implied torture, mentions of domestic violence, mentions of sexual assault, mentions of sex, and mentions of menstration

Auditions will be open until November 30th, 2019
