The details for the next play auditions are as follows:

Dinner by Moira Buffini

Audition Date: Friday 29 September 2023 - 7.30pm
Venue: Seaford Little Theatre
Production dates: 1 - 9 March 2024

Director: Mike Truman

An artist, a scientist and a sexpot are coming to dinner. Paige, hostess extraordinaire, is celebrating the publication of her husband’s best seller. The arrival of Mike, marooned in the foggy lane after crashing his van, provides an unexpected addition to the evening’s entertainment. A silent waiter, sourced from an obscure website, completes the picture. Primordial soup is first on the menu – let the dinner from hell begin.
A wonderful comedy chiller, with blood on the carpet before bedtime!

This play is a black comedy with some challenging language.

There will be a play-reading the week before (see below) so acting scripts will not be available until after that date, but if you would like a pdf of the script please email me (address below). Also do the same if you would like to know more about the play or any of the characters.
