Looking for truthful, funny, physically adept performers who can commit to the style of the play and fully inhabit the characters. It is vital to believe in the characters who are performing the play within the play, as that is where the heartbreaking comedy comes from. With that in mind, we are looking for actors with a keen ability and understanding of comedy but are able to play the truth of the scenes.

Role # 1 - Chris Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
High status clown. Rigid, uptight, everything really matters. He is the director of the show and this is the biggest day of his life. Everything is riding on this. It is a nerve wracking and exciting night. His pain is evident and every time someone laughs the pain deepens. He has equal amounts of contempt for his fellow actors & the audience watching the play. RP ACCENT.

Role # 2 - Robert Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Wants to be Richard Burton, as evidenced by his declamatory style. He is, however, not a parody of a bad actor. He is unaware of others around him. He does not feel badly when things go wrong and never learns from his mistakes. There is a power struggle between Robert and Chris to be president of the Cornley Poly Drama Society (a position that matters a great deal to Robert). Has real vocal power. RP ACCENT.

Role # 3 - Max Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
He has never been on stage before. He learned his lines and does exactly what he's told to do. He has zero connection with any of the other actors, but when he gets a laugh he breaks the 4th wall and engages with the audience. Childlike and naïve. His mistakes are fundamental. He doesn't think anything through, just looks for approval. RP ACCENT.

Role # 4 - Dennis Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
He has no real desire to be involved in the theatre, he just wants to make friends (of which he has none). He believes if he does well in the show, he will be more successful socially. Laughter from the audience is agony for him. He may be slightly oblivious, but understands when he gets things wrong. The laughter is a personal tragedy/failure. RP ACCENT.

Role # 5 - Trevor Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The play's lighting and sound operator. He simply wants to get on with the show. Curmudgeonly and doesn't care for actors. He is easily distracted and does many things he shouldn't, including engaging with the audience. When things go really sideways, he is forced to act in the play. He hates acting.
