Communicating Doors – Audition 5 August

A time-travelling comedy thriller

Presented as part of their Silver Jubilee Year by Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe

Directed by John Marwick

It’s time for a laugh, a giggle, a shock and a bit of suspense.

Communicating Doors is one of the most popular plays from one of Britain’s best known and loved comedy writers. The play is set in a London hotel suite and spans 40 years from 2032 through the present and back to 1992. As well as Ayckbourn’s wonderful wit and humour, the play gets its audiences puzzling while genuinely delivering suspense and the odd shock.

It features three women: Poopay, a very timid dominatrix; Jessica, a young wife on her honeymoon; and Jessica a no-nonsense 45-year old. These three are all related in one way or another to Reece, a wealthy but ruthless businessman and his associate, Julian.

Communicating Doors has now been cast.
