Summer Vacation

Date: Sunday 27th January
Time: 4- 6pm

The Summer House is one of six original one-act plays that are being performed as part of the WRiTEON Festival this Summer. It is being performed on the ADC Theatre mainstage at 7.45pm each night from Tue 23rd July to Sat 27th July 2019.

We are looking for two male actors with playing ages of 16 and 17 years old. The play features two characters Alan and Kurt as teenagers and as 60 year-olds so we are looking for actors who could look like younger versions of the older actors.

It is a great opportunity to perform on the ADC mainstage in a four-hander, and be the first actor to make their mark on this brand new script.

For more information, and if you'd like to see a copy of the complete script, please contact castings@writeon.org.uk. There is no need to prepare anything.

~ PYGMALION by GEORGE BERNARD SHAW ~

‘Yes, you squashed cabbage leaf, you disgrace to the noble architecture of these columns, you incarnate insult to the English language, I could pass you off as the Queen of Sheba’

Phonetician Henry Higgins has got a project: to transform cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into a duchess of high society. However, the one thing he doesn’t realise is that his ‘creation’ has a mind and a life of her own, and he can’t simply throw her back into the gutter when he’s finished with his experiment.

A witty and slapstick reworking of the classical tale Pygmalion, this play is also a cutting attack against the treatment of women by men and the British class system.

The University of Cambridge Asia Theatre Tour is looking for 6/7 actors to come with us on an incredible trip around China, South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong. This is an incredible opportunity to travel and be involved in a once in a lifetime cultural and theatrical exchange.

We are looking to make the tour as accessible as possible and we will help you with applications for travel grants/other funding so please don't be put off by price!

If you want to know more (/see some weird and wonderful vlogs and photos) check out our Facebook (facebook.com/UCATT/) .

With the exception the three leads, Eliza (female/non-binary), Higgins (male/non-binary), and Pickering (male/non-binary), casting will be gender-blind. All casting will be race-blind. For extracts (also available on the door) and more information please see our Audition Pack below!
