Casting Call For Rope

Casting Call For Rope

A casting call for – ROPEby Patrick Hamilton (one-time resident of Hassocks) will take place at the Players Theatre in Hurstpierpoint.

Readings and auditions are on Wednesday 2nd January, and Wednesday January 9th at 8pm.

This play, written in 1929, is fundamentally a murder mystery, encompassing elements of class and psychological distinctions. Noel Coward it is not!

Two Oxford undergraduates plot and carry out the murder of a third student. The audience know very early on what has happened but the mystery lies in the behaviour and reaction of the murderers and their party guests – one of whom smells the proverbial rat.

Players required – 6 men, 2 women. The ages are merely a guide, don’t be deterred if you don’t quite match.

Brandon – 20’s

Granillo – 20’s

Sabot – 20-40

Kenneth – late teens, early twenties

Leila – similar age to Kenneth

Sir Johnston Kentsley – 50+

Mrs Debenham – 50+

Rupert – 29+

We are always keen to hear from people who prefer the backstage side of things – do come along if you would like to know more about how you can get involved.

  • The production runs from the 2nd April – 6th April 2019.

Any queries – please call Jo Kearns 01273 834200. See you in January!
