As some of you know, I made my debut as a writer in September with a one act play called The second night. It is a simple piece, showing how I think two people may have spent the last few hours of their lives before becoming victims in one of the most notorious crimes of the twentieth century.
I would like to take my play to a couple of festivals in 2019 but, unfortunately, the original cast are now unavailable. Consequently, I am going to hold auditions to recast for the festivals.
The parts are
Leno LaBianca A successful American middle-aged businessman.
Rosemary LaBianca His wife, a successful businesswoman in her own right. She is younger than her husband.
Neither role is particularly physically demanding but there are quite a lot of lines to learn.
The auditions will be in the main hall at the Settlement on Wednesday 5th December at 8.00pm and Sunday 9th December at 10.30am.
Obviously, you must be available for the festivals. I cannot give you a specific performance dates yet, but the festival dates are as follows.
The 54th Sawston Drama Festival, The Marven Centre, New Road, Sawston from 21 – 23 March 2019 and the 85th Welwyn Drama Festival, The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City from May 13-18th, 2019.
If you want to know more about the events on which my play is based, then Google the Manson Family murders and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca.
If you are interested and would like to see a script ahead of time, please let me know and I will send it to you. I hope to see you at the auditions.
