The Daegu Theatre Troupe bring their group of dynamic, theatre loving foreigners to "the Seoul of Asia" to perform in "It's Not Easy Being Seen," a show centred around the controversial issue of colourblind casting. Colourblind casting is the idea of casting based entirely on talented and not race. The show, hosted by the Probationary Theatre Company of Seoul and also featuring work from Dionysus Theatre of Daejeon, will be held Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 at 6pm and 9pm at the White Box Theatre. Tickets are 15,000 won at the door.
The Daegu Theatre Troupe, under the direction of Artistic Director Stevie Baker, are performing African-American author Zora Neale Hurston's vaudvillle comedy Lawing and Jawing. The play centres around a few American outlaws in Georgia during the 1930's. This piece originally appeared in the all-black revue Fast and Furious on September 15th 1931. Keeping with the "colourblind casting" theme, the Daegu Theatre Troupe's version of Lawing and Jawing features actors from England, Puerto Rico, Canada and all across the United States.
