In 1715, Colonial Mexico crouches under the shadow of Spanish rule. In a nunnery basement, three girls uncover a hidden manuscript and begin to act out its brilliantly bawdy farce. In these stolen moments, they learn about themselves, their world, and begin to discover the blazing talent of a woman whose brilliance was at sharp odds with the church. The Tenth Muse is a story that champions the rights to be free in a world where the class system rules, art, literature and music are banned and strict limitations are set upon society for being born a woman.
Parts available for 9 women ranging in ages from 17(ish)/early 20s to…no age is too old!
We need actors who represent all corners of the globe, keeping in mind several character roles (17-45 years old) are written specifically for actors of Central/South American heritage.
3 actresses should be 17/18 to early 20s.
