February Bogan 2014
Wednesday February 19th – Saturday 22nd
We bounce into next year with two one-act plays at Bogan House. You don't have to be a member to audition so, if anything tickles your fancy please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Patrick Cooper has stepped up to direct Harold Pinter’s ‘Some Kind of Alaska’.
He says: ‘A Kind of Alaska’ is a short play by Harold Pinter, written in the same period as ‘One for the Road’, with gentler subject matter but a similar emotional intensity. Inspired by Oliver Sacks’ ‘Awakenings’, it focuses on the recovery from sleeping sickness of a woman of 45, in the company of her doctor and her sister. As you’d expect, it is perfectly written, moving, sometimes funny, and enigmatic. It needs very little furniture, no props, scenery or lighting effects. It’s all about the writing and the acting.
Three excellent parts:
Deborah - mid-40s
Pauline (her sister) - mid-40s
Hornby (male) - about 60
John Parker has written a new play called ‘Dickon’ – set in the Tower of London in the fifteenth century. Richard Duke of York (to become Richard III) interviews Jane Shore, Edward IV’s former mistress, shortly after the king’s unexpected death. A cast of two – one male, one female.
Jeremy Holloway was going to be presenting 'Dead Popular' by Sophia Sheridan, who is a local young playwright. This project will be going ahead in the new year. The 'where', 'how' and 'when' of which will be announced shortly.
AUDITIONS: Saturday 23rd November 2 – 5 pm and Saturday 30th November 2-5 pm at Birdwood House in Totnes.
If these dates aren’t convenient, just let us know and we can arrange another time.
