"Well, we sent out a call, but we just couldn't find anyone!" This common phrase has been the scapegoat for theaters, casting directors, and productions who come under interrogation for their work as the demand for cultural competency grows in the theatre. Join a panel of trans and non-binary actors moderated by actress and activist Ianne Fields Stewart for a discussion on radicalizing casting and creative processes, the work beyond representation, and living at the intersection of race and gender.
