Auditions for South Bank’s autumn production of ‘The Glass Menagerie’ by Tennessee Williams directed by Johnny McGurgan will take place on:
Tuesday 3rd September and Thursday 5th September at 7.30pm in South Bank.
The cast consists of two female characters (mother & daughter) and two younger male characters.
As usual, the auditions will be informal and no particular preparation is expected. However, a ‘deep south’ American accent is required.
A note about the play:
Abandoned by her husband, Amanda Wingfield comforts herself with recollections of her earlier, more gracious life in Blue Mountain when she was pursued by ‘gentleman callers.’ Her son Tom, a poet with a job in a warehouse, longs for adventure and escape from his mother’s suffocating embrace, while Laura, her shy, disabled daughter, has her glass menagerie and her memories. Amanda is desperate to find her daughter a husband, but when the long-awaited gentleman caller does arrive, will Laura’s romantic illusions be crushed?
