“After Mrs. Rochester” needs a man. Preferably two.

A plea from one of the producers of “After Mrs. Rochester“:

Alumnae Theatre is holding auditions this week (July 6, 7, and 9) for “After Mrs. Rochester” and while our audition list is full of fantabulous women there is nary a man in sight. NARY A MAN.

But seriously, folks.  Two male actors – any ages – are needed to play a variety of roles.  British playwright Polly Teale’s dramatic script concerns the demons and memories (both real and imagined) that pursued Caribbean-born writer Jean Rhys, who led a troubled life and produced her best-known work, a Jane Eyre prequel titled Wide Sargasso Sea, when she was 76.

The two male actors in our production will portray Jean’s father, her three husbands and various lovers, the fictional Mr. Rochester from Bronte’s Jane Eyre, etc.

These actors should either have a background in physical theatre or otherwise be in good physical condition.  The director, Laura Roald,  is particularly interested in seeing actors who have experience in collective creation.

Don’t be shy!
