AUDITION FOR 1 FEMALE AND 1 MALE ACTOR

Audition for 1 female and 1 male actor

We are looking for 2 actors for the next Alphabetti Theatre production, Trolley Boy.

About the play

Set in Washington, Tyne and Wear, in the early 90s, Trolley Boy is the story of a teenage boy trying to come to terms with loss.

Things haven’t been great for 14-year old Colin. 1992 was already a pretty crap year. But when tragedy strikes and the forces of darkness move in there’s only one thing left to do: become a superhero.

It is a play about superheroes, grief and shopping trolleys.

Written by David Raynor
Directed by Ali Pritchard
Produced by Chloe Stott
Dramatrug Ben Dickenson
