Ria and Ian will have their enhanced DBS by the start of rehearsals, any under sixteen auditionees will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult for the auditions.
The play is a two hander, telling Marianne and Roland’s story over and over again in a myriad of different (and similar) ways.
As written the characters are female and male, around thirty years old. But they do not have to be. For Ria it is about getting the right two actors and she is, as usual, blind casting in every way. Everybody is welcome to audition.
Please prepare eight lines of any Leonard Cohen song to be delivered as a spoken monologue.
Please prepare ‘Into Dust’ by Mazzy Star and ‘So Long, Marianne’ by Leonard Cohen accompanying yourself on your own instrument. We have an electric piano at the theatre.
Please allow at least an hour for the audition process.
Any questions at all please contact Ria.
Note that in exceptional circumstances, it may be necessary for one or more characters to be assigned prior to auditions. There will always be advanced notice of this to avoid disappointment. Unless there is an exception clearly stated here, roles are not pre-determined.
