Audition for Ditchling Players Spring 2019 Production: The curtain has just come down on the autumn production of And Then There Were None. Audiences, cast and indeed everyone involved in this production enjoyed the Agatha Christie mystery. For Spring 2019 the Players are putting on How the Other Half Loves by Alan Ayckbourn. The production dates are 15-18 May and auditions are being held on Monday 7 January in Ditchling Village Hall at 8pm. The play is a farce following the consequences of an adulterous affair between a married man and his boss’s wife and their attempts to cover their tracks by roping in a third couple to be their alibi. There is a cast of three couples and into this mix comes the completely innocent William and his wife Mary, both of whom believe their spouse to also be having an affair. This is sure to be a funny play and the Players look forward to you coming to the audition, whether it’s for one of the roles, or to help, in whatever capacity backstage. If you’d like more information or are unable to make the audition date and would like to be considered for a part, please contact the director, Penelope Bennett on pellyjane@hotmail.com.
