Auditions – Bed by Jim Cartwright
7:45pm, Tues 4th June
From the playwrite of Road and The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, TODS are proud to present Bed by Jim Cartwright as our Autumn production! Seven elderly people share a vast bed, to dream, remember and reflect on a long past. Exploring the time between bedtime and dreamy sleep, this surreal play is dominated by memories that keep each character awake at night and infiltrate their dreams, haunted by their past and their present.
Bed will be by David Waters, current director of Habeas Corpus. Rehearsals will begin with a few casual read-throughs in June and full rehearsals will be twice a week from the beginning of September.
7:30pm on Thursday 31st October, Friday 1st November and Sat 2nd November 2019.
Female: Marjorie, Bosom Lady, Spinster, Wife from The Couple
Male: Captain, Charles, Husband from The Couple
Unspecified: Sermon Head
