I’m sure that by now you will have heard the sad news about the need to postpone the September production of Dancing at Lughnasa as it has been temporarily withdrawn from availability for performance by amateurs. I know that Barbara was very excited to be directing this play and is still looking forward to being able to do so again in the not too distant future, maybe in June 2020.
I have offered to fill the gap by directing The Steamie, a comedy by Tony Roper (Rab C Nesbitt) which will be performed week beginning 21 October instead (don’t worry we are, as we speak, checking for any restrictions!). There will be a read through on Tuesday 23 July and an audition on Tue 6 August. The cast is made up as follows: F4/M1. The oldest is about 75, one about 65, one about 40 and one is young – all a bit flexible. The male is described as young and big! Again flexible. All are working class Glaswegians – no glamorous parts I’m afraid.
It would be very helpful if anyone interested in being involved could let me know in advance about any restrictions they have re. Rehearsal dates/times and/or any holidays they already have booked during September /October. You can text or call me on 07412 941065. I will send all those interested a description of the characters.
I do hope that you will wish to be involved and look forward to seeing you soon.
