This week's clubnight: Scenes in a different light

Reinterpretation is the life blood of mainstream theatre. Revivals of plays gone by are frequent, as in many cases audiences flock to see the old familiar. But the best new productions are those which offer some level of originality, that achieve the fine balance of portraying recognisable characters, plots and situations in a different light.
For this evening's clubnight you are invited to choose a scene - in whole or in part; from a play, film or novel - which you would like to perform in a different time, space or setting to that conventionally seen. You may like to alter the intentions or motives of characters to draw out or even conjure interesting elements of subtext. Be as bold, humorous or clever as you like.
Please bring along any costumes, props or music integral to your re-telling and enough copies of the scene for others to read in with you (photocopying facilities will be available to assist).

There will be 30 minutes of read through time before putting scenes on their feet.

This clubnight takes place on Wednesday 24 September 2014.

Audition Notice: Measure for Measure

Friday 10- 17 October 6.30pm

A comedy that is rarely performed because of its content, Measure for Measure is considered by scholars to be Shakespeare's finest Comedy.

It is a wonderful play for the actor. Its many comic characters are drawn from the teeming richness of Venice's low life, in which the play will be set; calling on supporting actors to create the visual atmosphere of the brothels and the contrasting stark world created by the authoritarian figurehead who is in control of Venice. Hypocrisy rules. No one is who they seem.

I anticipate great fun will be had by all!

For the audition, please bring two contrasting pieces of approx. two minutes duration, preferably one from the play. They do not have to be learnt, but well prepared. You may be asked to workshop a scene so please have read the play before coming.

Measure for Measure is part of our participation in RSC Open Stages 2014-2016. It will be presented in Chapter in March 2015 and, in part, showcased at the Sherman for one evening in June/July.

Contact: (029) 2056 7543 for an audition time.
