Call For: Two Leads For Comedy Short in DublinNew


Tuesday Night is a comedy about the sensationalised media representation of trans people, and the burdens of local planning regulation.

Frank is a bored, small-town police detective who’s been raised on too much TV. His only frame of reference for the trans community is what he’s seen on CSI, Law and Order, and big Hollywood movies like Silence of the Lambs.

Then one day, Lynne walks in. She’s a sharp, no BS, middle class stockbroker who just happens to be trans. She’s got a bland complaint out her neighbour’s backyard (something to do with a shed) but all Frank sees an opportunity to unearth a daft transphobic conspiracy just like he’s seen on TV.

So now Lynne’s got to try and cope with this idiot and steer him toward what’s really important – getting that shed removed before the long weekend

Please send on any showreels or footage of previous work.

The shoot will be over two days on the 19th and 20th of November.

Actors will also need to be available for rehearsal at some point in the previous week.

This is Pondering’s second short with our first recently being selected and screened at the BAFTA affiliated, London Short Film Festival.

We have a wonderful crew involved and our set will be extremely professional but we expect it to be a lot of fun too.

Food and drinks will also be provided throughout the shoot.

Payment: €160 for two days


Frank is a lonely, small-town detective who’s been watching too much TV. He has a fantasy about what a detective ought to be doing (hunting down bad guys and uncovering conspiracies) whereas he spends most of his time dealing with littering and parking tickets. We need a strong comedy performer who can be both overbearing and pathetic.

  • Languages: English

Lynne is a no-nonsense, somewhat irritable professional with a hell of a lot more going on in her life than Frank. We’re looking for a performance that’s confident, sarcastic and a little mischievous – as a trans person, Lynne refuses to be a victim and places an emphasis on getting what she wants out of the circumstances she finds herself in.

We want to cast a member of the trans community in the role of Lynne – we’re looking for somebody who can bring their own life experiences to the fore.
