Ducks Casting Call

Thank you for your interest in performing with us. Please read the information below and be in touch to with any questions.

Call out for actors to work on a full length profit share production about modern love and mental health.



Ducks is a heartfelt story of love and loss that follows duck enthusiast, Lucie. When Lucie is asked by her therapist friend, Ed, to talk about her life, she finds herself gravitating to discussions about her ex partner, Jem.


Over the course of their sessions, she digs deeper into the past and her thoughts surrounding her relationship with Jem are thrown into question. Love and memory intertwine beneath the surface as Lucie attempts to make sense of all she discovers.

Ducks will be directed by Afton Aitkenhead and feature Mercedes May López in the role of Lucie. Both Afton and May worked with Kibo Productions on last year’s Reboot Festival.


Jem (late 20’s - 30’s): Lucie’s (ex) girlfriend, forms a strong bond with Lucie but as her mental health deteriorates, she and Lucie’s ability to communicate falls apart.


Ed (late 20s - 30’s): Training to be a therapist, wants to help Lucie, but struggles to get her to open up.

We’re particularly interested in hearing from queer actors for both these roles, but encourage everyone to apply.
