Forward Flux and Pratidhwani invite you to audition for our 2018 production of A Small History of Amal, Age 7.

We are looking for Indian and South Asian actors.

Synopsis:

On the day of the 2006 Mumbai train bombings, Amal, a seven-year-old boy in a public hospital, lives a smaller history. He meets doctors, patients, and a food service worker with dreams of Bollywood. He writes a letter to the Prime Minister, and falls in love for the first time. But when the hospital struggles beyond capacity to treat the survivors, Amal gets lost in the shuffle. Now, it’ll take an explorer’s heart and a little Bollywood magic to defeat the god of death
