The show opens on 18th October and will be running until 28th October 2017
Some roles are already cast -Lennie Small and Slim- but we are still looking for:

-A male actor, 40/50 years old, black/mixed race, to play Crooks and other male and female characters
You’ll need to be happy doubling and tripling characters and interested in devising.
We will research a stage language somewhere between documentary realism and the Bible, with echoes of Sergio Leone and Little House on the Prairie.
