AUDITION – ‘A Number’

3rd January 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Seeking One Actor to play Three Clone Characters

Davenham Players are seeking a talented and versatile male actor with a playing age of 30-40 to take the roles of three different characters in Caryl Churchill’s sci-fi thriller ‘A Number’.

A one act play with a runtime of approximately one hour, ‘A Number’ tells the story of Salter (60s) and three cloned versions of his son, all of which have very distinct personalities.

Bernard 1 = The original son, who Salter neglected in early childhood and then put into care. B1 has grown into an angry, resentful and psychologically damaged adult.

Bernard 2 = The first clone who Salter adopted as his replacement son. B2 is naïve and vulnerable, a bit of a man-child. He’s only just learned the truth of his origins.

Michael Black = Another clone who has grown up never knowing about Salter. Michael is jovial and quirky, a family man and teacher. Should be played comedically.

Any actors who would be interested in this unique challenge, please contact the director – kellycowley@hotmail.co.uk – as soon as you can. Davenham Players will be holding a second lot of auditions for this role on Tuesday 3rd January at 7pm (the role of Salter is also still open but there are actors in consideration).

The casting of this play will be followed by rehearsals on Tuesdays and Sundays from January until the performance week in mid-March.
