Auditions: June 2017
We are currently casting for two of our upcoming touring productions. Finding Joy, our award-winning show about dementia, tours the UK from September to November 2017, concluding with possible performances in China. Our new production, A Brave Face, will tour from end Jan-May 2018, opening at London International Mime Festival, possibly including dates in Germany.
We are looking for experienced physical theatre actors, both male and female, to perform in one or both productions. Applicants should have strong physical skills, be creative, hard-working, reliable and comfortable with devised theatre: mask experience is preferable but not essential. Please do not apply unless you have at least 3 years’ professional acting experience, including touring.
Auditions will be workshop-based, and held over two days.

Within the casting, as a genuine occupational requirement, we are aiming to find a person of short stature (male or female), and a black or Asian actor (male).
