Call For: Actress


Illustration: Adeline Pericart

Underground Cinema are looking for a young girl to play the role of eight year old Betty in Ciaran Creagh’s forthcoming short film The Picnic.

Synopsis: Betty, aged 8 and Brendan, aged 6, brother and sister, live in Dublin in the 1970s with their mother Mary. Their father recently died suddenly and it is now the afternoon after the burial and the reception is taking place in their home. Betty feeling isolated and confused about her father’s death decides to take her little brother on a picnic to visit her father’s grave, unbeknown to her mother, who is understandably finding it difficult to hold it together.

Hand in hand, these two young children embark on their journey crossing roads, encountering bully boys, shopping for their picnic and making their way to the graveyard and then failing to locate their father’s grave. Frustration leads to the realisation that their father is gone for good and it is only with the arrival of the frantic mother trying to find her children does the family now help each other in facing their bereavement.
A simple story of how children try to understand the trauma of grief and come to terms with the fact that their father is not coming home and compartmentalise their feelings but shows and demonstrates the resilience of innocent young children in accepting and surviving such events in the real world.

Ciaran Creagh is an Irish writer from Dublin who writes for the theatre and film. He has had three plays publicly performed and his first film, Parked, starred Colm Meaney and Colin Morgan. Ciarans last short film The Note starring Aidan Gillen picked up three awards at the Underground Cinema Awards last year – Best Film, Best Director and Best Score
Underground Cinema are currently accepting CV’s for the role of Betty. To request an audition please forward a recent photograph along with a CV or covering letter/resumé to

Auditions which are by appointment only, will take place in the Generator Hostel in Smithfield on Saturday May 24th between 930am to 2pm
