Run For Your Wife



Contact: We look forward to seeing you there!


Read through on 28th Feb, 7.30pm
Auditions following on 1st March, 7.30pm
Performance: Weds 14th June - Sat 17th June 2017


CADS next production which runs Weds 14th June - Sat 17th June 2017 will be 'Run For Your Wife', a comedy by Ray Cooney. This will be directed by Alex Bass, whose first directorial venture 'Par For The Course' has recently been nominated for the NODA District 11 - 'Best Drama' award!
Run For Your Wife is a superb example of the British farce which had audiences rolling in the aisles in London and New York! A taxi driver gets away with having two wives in different areas of London because of his irregular working schedule. Complication is piled upon complication as the cabby tries to keep his double life from exploding.
John Smith is a taxi driver and very ordinary, he has a lovely wife and a perfect existence in Streatham and a lovely wife and a perfect existence in Wimbledon. And he flits between Streatham and Wimbledon – a distance of only 2 miles – like an over-sexed bumble bee.
This could have gone on forever except that one day a policeman...but that would be giving the game away. RUN FOR YOUR WIFE ran for over eight years in London followed by a New York production. It was described by the critics as “British comedy at its best” and is constantly being revived all over the world.
A play in two acts - The action takes place in the Wimbledon flat of John and Mary Smith, and, simultaneously, in the Streatham flat of John and Barbera Smith

Main Characters:

Granny Weatherwax (40+) – a formidable, strong character and unofficial leader of the witches coven that she claims she doesn’t have.

Nanny Ogg – (60+) – Larger than life witch, quite crude and down to earth.

Magrat Garlick – (early 20’s) – New witch to the coven. New age-y and innocent.

Duke Felmet – (30+) Cousin of the late Verence. Nagged into the murder by his wife. Gets progressively madder as the play goes on, as he tries to wash away the blood on his hands that only he can see.

The Duchess – (30+) – Strong and wilful. Enjoys the iron rule of the Kingdom.

The Fool – (20’s) – Love interest for Magrat. Very intelligent despite the bells. Hates being a fool, but the job has been handed down over the generations.

Contact: If you require further details please email John Roberts jperoberts@btinternet.com – otherwise I look forward to seeing you at the read through!


Read through – Monday March 20th 2017 at 7.30 pm
Auditions – Wednesday March 22nd 2017 at 7.30 pm
Performance Week – Tuesday 13th June to Saturday 17th June 2017
Rehearsals will commence on Monday March 27th and will mainly take place on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm


SYNOPSIS:
Hilarious comedy about the worst singer in the world. In 1940s New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as 'the first lady of the sliding scale', she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics - instead she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. Based upon a true story, the play spins from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in this hilarious and heart-warming comedy.

CAST
Florence Foster Jenkins – Playing Age – 55 to 75
She is a singer - a bad singer - one of the worst ever (but she just doesn't realise). We need either someone who sings, who will then learn to sing badly or someone who does not sing and who can just fight for the notes - it works either way! The most important attribute is to have a keen sense of comedy and find a way of making Florence sing in the terrible way that made her so infamous. On stage most of the time this will be a demanding but wonderful part to play – lots of dressing up and lots of fun!

St Clair – Playing Age – 55 to 75
Florence’s actor boyfriend - a larger than life character seemingly devoted to Florence who protects her from the outside world, very English, much the failed Shakespearian actor - a lover of life, food and wine (and probably other women!) – another great character to play.

Cosme McMoon – Playing age 30 to 45
Florence’s pianist – Very arch, knowing and amusing – lots of witty lines and a very important character in the play – it would be great if you can play the piano but this is not essential and acting ability trumps piano playing – a good range of horrified expressions will be an asset!

Dorothy – Playing age – 55 to 75
Florence’s friend and intimate – yet another very amusing eccentric character with plenty to do and lots of comic lines and scenarios – needs to be good at handling stuffed dogs!

Maria – Playing age – 30 to 50
Florence and St. Clair’s Mexican cook/housemaid – usually loud and cross! - this role is entirely in Spanish - a part to make your own – no end to the potential laughs that will accompany your every appearance on stage!

Mrs. Verrinder – Playing age – 40 to 60
Florence’s nemesis – someone who tells Florence what a terrible singer she is to her face – a cameo role but very important to the action of the play – lots of vigour and expression needed!
