Auditions – Bed by Jim Cartwright

7:45pm, Tues 4th June

Tenterden Pavillion

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.

Performance dates:

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

Auditions are open to all but any non-members must pay a TODS membership fee of £15 at or before the audition, which can be refunded on request if unsuccessful. There is a £10 show fee to perform in this play.
