Folk by Tom Wells

The read-through for this lovely play will take place at the Playhouse at 7.30pm on 7th February.  This is a chance to hear the play, if you haven’t already and pick up a script in preparation for the audition on the 14th February.  Yes, I know it is Valentine’s Day but it’s a school night so maybe best to wine and dine with your loved ones at the weekend.  As long as they know that you love them I’m sure they will understand.

The audition is also at the Playhouse from 7.30pm and the bar will be open for both evenings.

Folk is a play with music and all three characters are required to play an instrument and put over a song.  They are ordinary people albeit misfits brought together for their love of folk music.

The characters are –

Stephen, 50s plays guitar and penny whistle.  He is a quiet, fairly intense man whose highlight is his weekly get-together with Winnie.

Winnie – an Irish nun, 50’s – she loves a bit of a sing song, smoking, Guinness and plays the spoons.

Kayleigh – a 15yr old schoolgirl, plays the penny whistle.

I want to be fairly flexible about the playing ages of the characters but any young girls thinking of auditioning must be 16yrs old.  I’m very happy to consider older females who can get away with playing teenagers. Similarly for the older roles, I’m happy to consider younger.

I won’t be auditioning the music side of the play but it goes without saying whoever goes for Stephen must be competent on guitar.

I’m also in need of a prompt, a P.A. and a stage manager.

I have scripts so please contact me if you would like one before the read-through or need more information about play, rehearsals and audition.
