Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me

7 Feb, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

About the Show:

They exercise and they argue, supportive in their mutual determination to survive. They are joined by an English academic, Michael. The three display their national biases and prejudices, which are intensified in the cramped confines of their cell. As time passes, resentments and recriminations give way to an acknowledgment of their characters, strengths and weaknesses. They learn that humour is their surest weapon against their captors and the safest armour to protect themselves. They shoot imaginary films, they throw a big party for each other, they play a fantastical game of tennis, they laugh at and with each other, and they learn to lament what was lost in their lives before captivity. Each comes to know himself through listening to the stories, sorrows and joys of the others. At the end of the play, they are capable of standing together and alone.

Available Roles:

Northern Irish
Playing age over 30

Playing over 40
Highly educated

Playing over 30
Has been there the longest. Has to be comfortable with singing “Amazing Grace” solo (does not need to be a strong singer).

The character descriptions are deliberately open. However, we would expect to cast somebody with a natural Irish accent as Edward.

Audition Preparation:

Each auditionee will be required to book a time slot by emailing itp@iristheatreplayers.com.au
At your audition you will need to perform a monologue from a contemporary play (any play which uses modern English). It doesn’t have to be long. The most important thing is to perform something you’re comfortable with that shows you at your best. You may then be asked to work with the director on a piece from the play or another exercise.
