    We are opening auditions for Week 5 Late show MY EYES ARE NOT SCABS!!

    We are now opening auditions for 'My Eyes Are Not Scabs', a collection of experimental avant-garde scripts first written and performed by Jeff Nuttall and The People Show amidst the countercultural fervour of the 1960s! We plan to make this a really ambitious production in terms of its experimentation, so if you're looking to get into something a little more avant-garde and surreal (or if you simply want to scream into another actor's face/ hack at a fake piece of their leg/ bluster in and out of the audience/ throw fake blood around etc), this is the show for you!
