The Hawth – April
The Last Time We Saw You
On the eve of his release from prison, the people Darren used to know begin to question the evidence against him. With tensions high and his guilt in doubt, will Darren and his former friends uncover what happened on their fateful holiday many years ago…?
Containing a vast range of characters, writer/director Bradley Barlow intends to use a small cast with some actors playing multiple roles whilst others focusing on a single character each. We’re looking for imaginative and dynamic character actors of all ages (18+) who are up for the challenge of collaborating to develop new characters. As with all of our auditions, we will provide you with scenes from the play as your audition piece.
Pitchy Breath is not a theatre club in the traditional “membership” sense. We encourage curious minds to join us in whatever capacity they want for as long as they want. From scriptwriters through to actors, sound designers, lighting technicians, puppeteers, stage management – anyone who has a desire to be involved with exciting, ambitious and high quality theatre should be talking to us.
