TOPIC: Gus (male, playing age 15) needed for Arcadia

Gus (male, playing age 15) needed for Arcadia 3 years ago #1

Hi all

Hope you don't mind me posting this here. Southside Players in Balham are in need of someone to play Gus/Augustus in a production of Arcadia (18-21 February).

The roles are largely non-speaking but still important! Please PM me if you know anyone who might be interested. 

Details below.

ARCADIA

Nineteenth-century Derbyshire: a girl looks at her rice pudding and perceives the inevitable decline of the Newtonian universe. Her tutor, discovered with another man’s wife, is challenged to a duel – and a great romantic poet comes to stay.

The same room, 200 years later: academics are still trying to figure it all out. In 1809 the genius of Thomasina Coverly is overshadowed by the secrets of the adults around her. In the present day, Hannah and Bernard try to piece together what happened, aided by a mathematician and his pet tortoise, Lightning.

Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece covers art and poetry, genius and madness, chaos and order, nature and geometry. Not to mention landscape gardening, the laws of thermodynamics. And sex, of course – the attraction that Newton left out.

The New York Times described Arcadia as Stoppard’s ‘richest, most ravishing comedy’.

Gus Coverly: Gus is Valentine and Chloe's younger brother, who has been mute since the age of five. Gus helps to pass several important props from past to present, and helps connect key moments in the play. Gus and Augustus are played by the same actor, and span the gap between past and present.

Augustus Coverly: Augustus is Thomasina's trouble-making younger brother, who appears in only a few brief scenes. Gus and Augustus are played by the same actor, and span the gap between past and present.
