Habeas Corpus Auditions
This May, we will be producing the hilariously raunchy Habeas Corpus by Alan Bennett and we are excited to announce that the auditions will be on Tuesday 5th February!
Amidst the seaside air of Brighton, the antics at the Wicksteed home are a satirical mess of passion. Family, friends and strangers become entangled in the sexual satisfaction of the “corpus” (body) – all except the innocent maid Mrs Swabb, the observer of all ill-judged lunges into lust and general wrong-doings. Think fake breasts, dropped trousers, unfortunate mistaken identities, and one strong family motto: He whose lust lasts, lasts longest.
We’ll be holding open auditions on at 7:30pm on Tuesday 5th February, at Tenterden Pavilion, for the following roles:
Arthur Wickstead – early 50’s, a GP
Dennis Wickstead – early 20’s, Arthur’s son
Canon Throbbing – 30-40, a celibate Priest
Mr Shanks – 30-40, a sales representative
Sir Percy Shorter – 50-60, a leading light in the medical profession
Mr Purdue – 40-50, a suicidal patient
Muriel Wickstead – early 40’s, Arthur’s wife
Constance Wickstead – early 40’s, Arthur’s sister
Mrs Swabb – 40-60, a cleaning lady
Lady Rumpers – 50-60, a white settler
Felicity Rumpers – 20-30, Lady Rumpers’ daughter
