Are you a young woman with an ingenue type of personality? Do you have the cunning of “I Love Lucy” and the heart of Karl Marx? Calling any UTPB female student in her 20’s with a vivacious personality: this may be your show!

The UTPB Performing Arts Department has cast the show “They Won’t Pay? We Won’t Pay!”  an amazing comedy/drama, and more. There is just one stellar performer left to cast, a young woman with a vibrant personality. Dr. Shawn Watson,  a director, and actor in addition to teaching, will offer individual readings of any student that fits the part who is interested. To schedule a reading appointment call  Dr. Watson at 432-553-0012.

In 1974, celebrated performer and playwright Dario Fo premiered his absurdist, highly political play We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay! A few months later, several Italian women were arrested for stealing food from a supermarket. The prosecutor in the case attempted to draw Fo into the trial as an accessory to the thefts because his play featured as its inciting incident a mass-theft from a supermarket.
Thankfully, the judge sagely absolved Fo of any responsibility for these crimes. Fo’s depiction of a hunger strike orchestrated by a group of poverty-stricken Italians may have the flavor of a documentary, but it is fueled by its satire and painfully funny slapstick.

Don’t miss out on auditioning for this play or viewing it as part of the audience in the Founder’s Theatre Building at UTPB. Students can get in on the fun by assisting as crew members as well, male or female.
