Most of what Follows is a Complete Waste of Time

by NF Simpson
Director: Bob Callender

Performances:    March 13-17, 2018
First Rehearsal: January 21, 2018

A collection of peculiar and sometimes puzzling sketches, dialogues, meditations, sermons, saints’ lives and sales pitches – many never before performed – from the gently subversive genius of N. F. Simpson.


This is a collection of short pieces, so I’m not looking to cast specific roles, but a group of around 10 performers who can bounce off each other and play lots of different small parts, creating memorable characters with sometimes just a few lines. There are parts for all ages and sexes. There’ll be a couple of meaty parts that recur as the same character across a number of “bits”, but also plenty of scope for actors who just want to do one or two bits. Particularly like to see anyone who can dance or do puppets.

Also happy to hear form anyone who’d like to be involved backstage doing costume, make-up, set, sound or lights.

For further information, or if you’d like to audition but can’t make those dates please email me.
