The Chameleon’s Dish Theatre will be auditioning for the upcoming performances of the Mrs. Hawking plays, an experiment in serial theater– a steampunk series of asking what if Sherlock Holmes were more like a lady Batman?
Mrs. Hawking debuted to success with two productions over the course of 2015, and will have an encore performances of plays in the series as part of Arisia, a major science fiction and fantasy convention in downton Boston in January 2016. This is a continuing series, so there is opportunity for reprising the role at a later date in an additional run, though no commitment is required beyond this January 2016 production.
There will also a small monetary honorarium paid to selected actors upon completion of the show’s run.

Women, late twenties to late forties, German accent.
