Death Knell by James Cawood

Death Knell by James Cawood

Contact: via our website or social media

Open Auditions: Thursday 6 December 2018, 7.30pm
Performance: May 2019

Successful Playwright Henry Roth takes delight in telling his neurotic wife, Evelyn, he has a new, ‘seismic’ play to unleash on the theatrical world. To prepare for its stage debut, he has invited the charming and charismatic (but unknown) actor, Jack Willoughby to their remote Highland home to prepare for the leading role of murderer. Jack’s arrival sends Evelyn into a flat spin when she realises he is her lover - a relationship developed during her time supposedly in rehab in London. Is Henry aware of the relationship?
With the arrival of Inspector Lazan from Scotland Yard - apparently on the hunt for the Highland serial killer, The Ghoul - the play takes another turn. Is he who he claims to be?
In an outstanding script, sending the audience reeling from one plot twist to another, the genre of “Thriller” is taken on an exciting new journey.
Each character is well drawn, the dialogue is lean and the action is non-stop. Actors should be prepared for physically demanding fight scenes and use of weapons. Previous stage combat experience not essential as training will be given.
Roles available :
Henry Roth (40-60)
Evelyn, Henry’s wife (20-40)
Jack Willoughby (20-40)
Inspector Lazan (20-40)
If you would like further details come along to the Read Through on 27 November 2018, 7.30pm at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury. If you are interested in auditioning but unable to make the above date, please get in touch.
Performance Dates are 1 - 4 May 2019. You do not have to be a member to audition but will be required to join if cast. See BCP website for membership options.
We look forward to seeing you!

Irish Startup Film Project

Hi There,

I’m writing as we’re looking to get in touch with some drama/film students who might be interested in working on a project for an Irish startup. We’re launching a new website in the coming days and we’re hoping to find some actors/filmmakers who would be interested in getting involved in filming an advert.

The plan is to create a 1/1:20minute minute video showcasing 3 parody products for the site. This would be a very simple shoot, but it might be a good opportunity for someone looking to build a portfolio.

If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch, and I look forward to hearing from you. danielle@girlcrew.com

The Government Inspector

The Government Inspector


Venue: Hampstead Parish Church

Box Office: TicketSource
Tickets: £10 / £8 concessions

Thursday 29th November: 7:30pm Friday 30th November: 7:30pm Saturday 1st December: 2:30pm & 7:30pm

Gogol’s masterful comedy “The Government Inspector” satirises political corruption, greed and gullibility. In a provincial town in an autocratic state, the local party officials have been abusing their position, taking bribes and threatening citizens, all while letting the town’s infrastructure collapse. Their cosy world is shattered when they hear news of the arrival of a government inspector. But, far too quickly, they jump to conclusions as to who that inspector is…

Silence by Nicola Werenowska

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

13th -17th November 2018

Venue: Salisbury Playhouse, Salberg Theatre

Behind every family, there lies a history and secrets that they carry with them from generation to generation. The three generations of women in Silence are no exception. Nicola Werenowska has crafted this families hauntingly dark history through nonlinear timelines narrated by each of the three characters.

Silence is not only the title of this movingly thoughtful play but the theme that runs throughout. These difficult heartbreaking decisions that have shaped the family are still playing a major role in their lives. Anna confirms this when trying to discuss a past event with her Mother, Ewa who refuses to answer and Anna replies frustratedly to her with ‘things you never ask’ which is simply met with silence by Ewa.

Each of the two Mother and Daughter relationships is haunted by feelings of not being good enough and unloved. However, not knowing how to be able to love appears to be the reality.

Russia’s part in World War II and the horrific events that took place in the Siberian prison camps after the war ended is the main backdrop in this play. Maria, the Grandmother has never forgotten the cold, the tiredness, hunger and devastating decision that was forced upon her during that time. She recalls these memories throughout the play as we step back and forth into her history until she reaches the devastating event that had moulded her relationship with Ewa.

Truly remarkable performances from all three actresses. Their passion, conviction and intensity are incredibly moving. This play is a credit to the director, Jo Newman. I defy anyone not to be affected by this heavily layered journey into the present day.

The Salberg Theatre is a smaller venue with 149 seats. It provides a more intimate setting for this play. Being closer to the performance enhances the dramatic tensions you feel as an audience by being in close proximity.

I rate this play 5 stars

Wiltshire Creative, Salisbury Playhouse, Malthouse Lane, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP2 7RA.

PTSD is a widely recognised mental health disorder with roots stretching back centuries and often associated with the military. Terminology such as `shell shock` and `combat fatigue` was used before the diagnosis of the condition being linked to mental health.

Play (dark humorous drama)

It’s 1982 and the 5 main characters of the play are going through an introduction to their sergeant and the audience at an army barracks, switching between present day and a brief ‘spotlight’ review of their troubled past, which has thrust them towards enemy lines.

The story is based around Jonny Stanton and his struggle to deal with Post War Stress Disorder experienced through conflict and the shock of battle. Jonny Stanton’s young wife and colleagues try bringing Jonny back to his former self with moving scenes of sadness, frustration and violence coupled with humour and a couple of twists and turns along the way. The opening scene gives you an overview of the leading characters, their personalities and how they arrive as soldiers. Then on to the ‘banter’ in an extended helicopter troop movement, then on to the bombing of HMS Sheffield and a gripping hospital scene.
In the background to all this is a love interest, a sex change and murder.
The script takes you along a path of a young married man’s insecurity and fear elevated to an extreme level brought on by the illness and poorly subscribed medication and misunderstanding of the condition.

Its worth a read I promise.

To obtain a copy of the script or for further information please contact me via email. Tony

We would like to perform in the Wellington Drama Festival but the cost of purchasing 9 scripts is quite prohibitive as we would not recoup the costs from the performance. Thanks :-)

Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society

Press release- ‘Robin Hood and Babes in the Woods’

This Christmas Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society are celebrating 50 years of Copythorne pantomimes with a production of ‘Robin Hood and Babes in the Woods’. In 1968 the local British Legion put on a panto to raise funds. It proved so popular that it became an annual event. In 1995 CATS was formed to continue the tradition when the Royal British Legion changed their fundraising rules. Over the years, hundreds of local people have been involved with the shows and thousands of pounds have been raised for charity.

This year’s show has been specially written to mark the occasion and includes all the characters you’d expect, plus quite a few that might surprise you, including some panto ghosts.

Robin Hood has returned from the Crusades to find that the people of Nottingham are in desperate need of help. The wicked Sheriff of Nottingham keeps taking their money in taxes and burning down their houses. Things get even worse when Prince John demands even more money and the Sheriff decides to get rid of his two young wards and marry Maid Marian so that he can get his hands on their lands.

Can Robin rescue the Babes and Marian and defeat the Sheriff? Maybe. With the help of his merry men (and women) and, of course, Nurse Nora, the dame, who knows everything there is to know about the soldiers in the castle, including the bungling Private Eye and Private Parts. A true village panto with plenty of songs, swash buckling and audience participation. The show also features dancers from the Jo Hyne School of Dance, who will bring some magic to Sherwood and a bit of Rock n Roll to Nottingham Castle.

Performances are: Saturday 24th November at 7.30
Sunday 25th November at 2.30
Saturday 1st December at 7.30
Sunday 2nd December at 2.30
At Copythorne Parish Hall, Pollards Moor Road, S04 2NZ
Tickets: Adults £8, under 16s £5, Family Ticket (2 adults and 2 children) £22
Available from Bartley Post Office, Landford Stores and Bramshaw Village Stores or by phoning our box office 02380 813415
