WHO WE ARE
Sonder and Seek is a new and intimate theatre collective currently in its developmental stages.

SEEKING
We are seeking to expand our small group of likeminded performers, playwrights and producers. For our debut production of original play Castor and Pollux, we are seeking a collaborative and adaptable director. This is an exciting opportunity for an up and coming director looking to showcase their unique and imaginative perspective.

BREAKDOWN

CASTOR AND POLLUX

*Loosely based on the Greek and Roman myths of the Gemini Twins.

Twins Castor and Pollux are cursed.

One spends a day in Heaven, while the other spends a day in Hell. The curse dictates that the duo must swap places every second day and can only speak to each other for five minutes in between the exchange. Once lovers and best friends, Castor and Pollux are growing to resent their confinement. Sullen and serious Pollux is growing tired of Castor’s complaints and coping mechanisms. For the dramatic Castor has begun writing a play, a dialogue for the twins to act out – and it doesn’t paint Pollux in the best light. Contempt begins to brew between the two as their limited time becomes consumed with fights, resentment and distain.

One fateful day they meet the deceased mortal, Demetrius in Hell. This third party enters into their strained relationship and he soon divides the pair, as both seek his love.
