At the end of August we will be touring a production of four of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. This will be a fast-moving show, with actors playing multiple roles, ranging from millers, priests and wives to chickens. We need 10 actors (5F, 5M) plus stage crew.
Auditions (Covid-safe) will be held on Saturday 22nd May (10-12) and Sunday 23rd May (2-4) in Dartington Village Hall, Cott Road, Dartington, TQ9 6HY.
Please contact Richard Clark in advance if you're interested.
All My Sons, written in 1946, was Miller's first commercial success, initially running on Broadway for over 300 performances. Despite its post-war setting, the play has been revived regularly, receiving six professional productions in the UK alone since 2010.
For those not familiar with the play, a plot summary can be found here.
