We are casting 3 Roles:
JULIE (Female, Playing Age 24-84)
This is a challenging role, as Julie ages over the play from being 24 in the first scene, to 84 in her final scene, and we're looking for one actor to play her through the ages. She is a native of Leek (Staffordshire Moorlands) and working class, so ideally we are looking for native Stoke-on-Trent area accents. The director is also looking for naturalism and believability and is keen to have the same actor play her all the way through so the audience knows who they're hearing. The role also requires an actor who is confident at sight reading.
BERT (Male, Playing Age 50s)
Bert is a native of Leek, Staffordshire Moorlands, where he has lived all his life. He lives in a small terraced house with his wife, Margaret and has a grown-up daughter, Julie. He is a big fan of the movies, and loves talking about what's new at the cinema. Bert appears in one scene.
MICHAEL (Male, Playing Age 48-68)
Michael is a native of Stoke-on-Trent. We meet him when he is 48, then, as is with Julie, he ages over the play and is 68 in the final scene. Whilst he grew up in North Staffordshire, he went away to university and moved to Birmingham, so we can allow for some flexibility/neutralisation in his accent. The director is looking for naturalism and believability. The role also requires an actor who is confident at sight reading.
