BCP are delighted to announce OPEN AUDITIONS for their 2017/2018 Season Opening production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Season’s Greetings.
This black, often farcical comedy, follows a dysfunctional family for a period of four days over the Christmas festivities. Petty (and not so petty) squabbles abound. Christmas presents are rifled. Mechanical toys are set off. Hilarious highlights include a drunken game of snakes and ladders, a chaotically incompetent puppet show and a midnight love scene!
There is ample opportunity for actors to create and develop good characterisations and stereotypical traits.
Neville - easy going, runs his own business (30s-40s)
Belinda - Neville’s attractive wife (30s-40s)
Phyllis - Neville’s (usually slightly drunk!) sister (40s-50s)
Harvey - Neville’s uncle, retired security worker, military background (60s-70s)
Bernard - married to Phyllis, ineffectual doctor, little sense of humour (40s-50s)
Rachel - Belinda’s older sister, anxious, unconventional in dress
Eddie - Neville’s friend, less successful in business, lazy (30s-40s)
Pattie - married to Eddie, heavily pregnant (30s-40s)
Clive - writer, shy, Rachel’s boyfriend (30s-40s)
