Producing works that center on the queer experience.

PrideArts is looking for an ASSISTANT STAGE MANAGER for their Chicago premier of one in two by Donja R. Love.  Jordan Ratliff will be directing.

Three Black queer men sit in an ethereal waiting room. One is about to be chosen to live the unforgiving story of a man diagnosed with HIV, struggling to be defined by more than his status. Unable to decide for themselves, the three men decide to let the audience choose who will play which role. Ten years after his own diagnosis, Donja R. Love has written a fearless account of the reality for too many Americans. A deeply personal call to action, one in two shines a light on the people behind a statistic and the strength of the community they make up.

This play contains depictions of suicide, partial nudity, and black trauma.

Rehearsals have already begun.  We would like for the ASM to start on January 30.  Previews begin February 16, with opening on February 20 and closing on March 19.

Instructions to Apply:

Please send resume to prideartstech@gmail.com. Include "ASM" in the subject line.

Pay Rate/Range*: $325 stipend
