We are looking for a queer woman of colour to act in Season 1 of audio drama Folxlore
In The Works is looking for a voice actor to join us our team on queer horror audio drama Folxlore.
Deadline: November 20th, 8pm (GMT)
Folxlore is a series of queer horror stories set in Glasgow – each story is written as a hybrid of spoken word theatre and audio fiction. After a successful pilot series released in February 2020, In The Works spoken word theatre company is again teaming up with Tin Can Audio, this time for a full 8-episode season.
We are casting an additional voice actor to join us on this first season. As part of the spoken word and folktale lineage of Folxlore, each of our voice actors play several roles, and so we are not looking to cast one specific role at this time, but rather to add someone’s voice to several episodes throughout the series.
Folxlore stories are horror stories and centre queer experiences of horror. This means the episodes you are involved in may contain discussions of, descriptions of, and/or depictions of discrimination against LGBTQAI+ people.

Casting Call Lines
This passage is for the character of a delivery driver describing a strange apartment block they often have to visit on their route:
“It's that feeling of heaviness, an oppressive and sound-dulled vacuum that tells you you're about to get in trouble for breaking a rule you can't help breaking. You are in trouble. You have been found out. This place is where that feeling goes to breed, multiply, and distill.”
This passage is for the character of an unagreeable mother arguing with her husband about her son’s plans to bring his boyfriend to her upcoming birthday celebration.
"I just don't understand why they have to do this to me on my birthday, it wouldn't kill them to make an extra visit to introduce us, we barely see him once a year as it is."
