No rest for us Marde Hens as we’re heading back into the rehearsal room with a brand new play. ‘Light One Up’ by Jane Wilton is set predominantly in a dilapidated and inadequate gazebo outside a factory which puts the fish in fish fingers. Huddled together in solidarity under their makeshift shelter, are a pack of pergola pariahs. Banished from their workplace to lunch, chunter and mumble, our characters ‘light up’ and convey their hidden inner monologue. Not always palatable or conducive to lunch time dining, the audience may be privy to secret revelations, desires, dreams and lies as these humble characters are not only in the process of igniting their cigarettes but ‘Lighting One Up’.
AUDITIONS are being held at The Strutts Centre, Belper from 7:30pm on Monday 12th and 19th September. We will be having a reading of parts of the script and hope to see a good turn out for this character based play.
The play itself requires 6 men and 4 women, so come along and have a read – you might be just what we’re looking for!!
