Casting Announcement: Love and Money

Guy Jones is delighted to announce his cast for Love and Money. I can honestly say that this show has been the hardest to cast of the three shows I’ve submitted to Theatre Committee. 44 actors registered online to audition, 30 ended up auditioning across three sessions and the competition was fierce. Wedding reception table plans of blended families have been easier to arrive at than the finalised cast of Love And Money! But whilst I thank everyone who auditioned […]

Director’s Preview: The Phlebotomist

Director Mark Ireson talks to us about his upcoming show The Phlebotomist by Ella Road, ahead of opening night on Tues 8th March. What attracted you to directing this play? Without a doubt, the quality of the writing. Ella Road has written a penetrating look at a young couple’s relationship from their first meeting onwards. As in all the best fiction, she has created 3-dimensional characters that we care about. The script makes us speculate about where society might be […]

The Phlebotomist – Costume Call Out

Do you have a wedding dress that you would love to see have a second life? We need a modern looking wedding dress,  size 12, for The Phelbotomist. Unfortunately the ones in SLT Wardrobe aren’t quite right. It is only worn in one scene (a wedding dress shop) and will be handled with the utmost care. If it has quick fastenings this would also be a bonus! Any keen charity shop shoppers please keep an eye out as well! Please […]

I stumbled across the script for Lost Monsters several years ago, it’s one I kept returning to as I just really loved it. It’s a play about humans, humans as social creatures. Humans are inherently social. We are not special […]
