WHAT: Auditions for FELT IF play The Bench, written and directed by Beth Morton
WHEN: Saturday 8th September, 1pm to 3.30pm
WHERE: FINNBRIT, Fredrikinkatu 20 A, Helsinki (MAP)
The Bench is a 40 minute light hearted play exploring themes of appearances and assumptions. The journey from disruption to acceptance, loneliness to company, leads to a realisation that, if you aren't consumed by such things your eyes can be opened up to how wrong you really are. The play sees the foundations of an unlikely friendship being formed and the impression that a third, once welcome, party makes by stepping into the mix.
There are roles available for two males and one female. All roles carry an equal function to the story, with all characters bringing undertones of their contrasting backgrounds to the situation within the play. Actors will be required to develop the back story of their character in order to aid the playing. A 'would-be' tramp, a persistently forthcoming young woman, and a rather odd online date make up the colourfully diverse cast of endearing characters.
Rehearsal times are likely to be one weekend day per week and a detailed rehearsal schedule will be drawn up in early September.
PLEASE BE ON TIME FOR THE AUDITIONS!
Performance dates to be confirmed but the play will run as part of the FELT IF, scheduled 19 - 25 November
Please note - If you have been cast in The Woman in Black this does not prevent you from auditioning for The Bench.
