This play gives us a wonderful behind the scenes glimpse of a travelling English theatre company led by an ageing Shakespearean actor/knight as he battles the hardships of a diminishing cast, World War 11 and his own demons.

Roles Auditioning are:

Her Ladyship                   -late 40’s to 60’s—she has played the juvenile leads for ever to Sir’s heroes

Madge                              -middle aged and devoted to Sir

Irene                                -young, ambitious (stage manager)

Geoffrey Thornton           -ageing Shakespearean bit part actor being extended beyond his skills

Mr  Oxenby -young enough to be ambitious.  Has an inflated opinion of himself.

There will be a read through fairly soon after casting to establish characterisation, followed by 3-4 weeks to learn lines.  Rehearsals start 29th August (Sunday) and continue Tues, Thurs, Sunday until opening.
