North London actors are a company of professional actors specialising in semi-staged rehearsed readings of a wide variety of plays both old and new.
The play we are presenting is 'Trouble in Mind' by Alice Childress in which the cast is split almost 50/50 between black and white actors. The play will be a semi-staged rehearsed reading performed at Chapel Playhouse, a professional venue in King's Cross.
SYNOPSIS: During a first rehearsal off-Broadway, the cast, which is half black, half white, are confronted by a choice: to get the play to Broadway, do they present black stereotypes that are familiar, or do they challenge them, even if that could mean the play goes no further?
We are looking for 4 talented black actors with a reliable, professional attitude, for this rehearsed reading. All parts are extremely strong characters and present a great challenge for actors.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

The performance will be one night only, and rehearsal usually takes place over one day in the preceding weekend (lunch will be provided) . The performance will take place in November 2019 (exact dates TBC)

Job payment

This job is unpaid - Unpaid, but an excellent opportunity for networking, or inviting agents to a central venue. Great opportunity for new or establishing actors to experiment in a supportive, fun environment.

Expenses paid - Lunch provided at rehearsal.
