MADE UP is a collaboration between Stan’s Cafe and a theatrical make-up artist. This new devised play is about friendship and the faces we show the world, and will feature live theatrical make-up transformations. MADE UP will premiere at The REP Birmingham before touring the North East of England.

Stan’s Cafe is looking for two very strong female actors, confident with text and experienced at working in an ensemble devising context to work with them on a new show, MADE UP. You will be required to work flexibly as part of a small devising team to push for something extraordinary.
