We are pleased to announce the audition dates for Loveplay by Moira Buffini which will be directed by Alex Kapila. The play will be performed at The Bear Pit from Wednesday 11- Saturday 14 February 2015.
The Guardian described Loveplay as: “A satirical romp that covers two millennia in 90 minutes...Each of the 10 scenes takes place in one London location; over the centuries it moves from Roman temple to medieval abbey, elegant town-house, Victorian studio and 1960s squat, eventually becoming a modern dating agency. The constant factor is the quest, often doomed, for love and sex.”
There are 31 roles ranging from a Roman soldier, to a vain Renaissance actor, to a 17th century, 33 year old virgin scientist and a foul-mouthed dating agency owner in the noughties. There is a fairly even split between male and female roles and a good range of both comic and dramatic parts.
Alex is looking to cast an ensemble of approximately eight people to play two to four roles each. Age range is 18+. As the play is divided into 10 scenes there may be flexibility around rehearsal venues and days.
If you are interested in auditioning but cannot make these dates then please let us know. Alternative times can be arranged with individuals.
No advance preparation is needed, but if you would like to borrow a copy of the script or have any questions please do contact us.
We are also looking for people are helping out on the production side, so please do let us know if you'd like to be involved whether it's lighting, sound, set, costumes, programme etc that piques your interest.
