Audition Call Out - Shed Man by Kevin Jones

Clock Tower Theatre Company is delighted to announce our new casting call out for the second production of our Fifth Season; Shed Man by Kevin Jones.

Brian has a job, a wife, two children, and a mother. One sunny bank holiday he decides to build a shed. Because how else can he deal with the overwhelming feeling that his life belongs to everyone but him?

Kevin Jones’s funny and down-to-earth play explores how we might cope with pressure, anxiety and guilt in a world that just wants us to “man-up”.

The production will be performed in Sherman Theatre’s Studio space as part of their ‘Get It While It’s Hot’ from November 13-17th 2018. The production will operate on a profit share basis and be rehearsed predominantly on Thursdays and Sundays from September.

Below are the details of the auditions, please email to let us know the role you’ll be auditioning for and your performance CV. Audition submissions will close on 20th August at 5pm. Please email

Audition Details:

Initial Auditions - Thursday the 23rd of August 5pm-9pm

Recalls – Sunday the 26th of August (TIME TBC)

Sony Room, Wales Millennium Centre.

Please wait on Awen Bar (second floor of the WMC, behind the big letters) to be called into your audition


BRIAN (40+)

Brian is an office worker and a family man, living in a Cardiff suburb with his wife Emma and two kids. In an effort to escape the pressures of his life one scorching bank holiday he attempts to build himself one corner of piece in his back garden in the form of a shed. He appears mild-mannered and awkward. The fragility of his state of mind becomes clearer as the play progresses.

EMMA (40+)

Brian’s wife. Strong, energetic and full of life. Mother to Sam and Martha. She's restless, constantly on the move. She’s outspoken and unafraid to challenge Brian.

MR TATUM (30+)

Brian’s boss. Tall and wears a suit. He initially appears friendly and a little foolish. This is slowly revealed to be a disguise.
 He is in fact, vain and egotistical. There is something sadistic and primitive about his need to control Brian.

PAT (60+)

Brian’s mother. A grieving widow. She's prone to self-pity, but also has a bitter streak borne from personal pain. Suitable for an actress with a bit of comic flair.

June's SCAB was great and if you missed it you truly missed out. A wonderful and generous night of brilliant, varied performance based work with a lovely, constructive audience. 

July's SCAB will take place at The Moon Cardiff on Womanby Street in Cardiff on July 31st. We'll be there from 7 with the first act kicking off at 8. The venue is fully accessible and completely brilliant. 

A night of new live art and performance. Whether this is your first time trying an idea, one in development or you've just come along to gawk at the amazing displays of talent this is a night for you.

A brilliant and insightful audience prepared to give you support and constructive criticism on how to develop your work and take it further. Invaluable whether you're a new artist or have years of experience. 

Performances between 10-20 minutes in length. The new, the strange, the experimental, the weird and different. Move, sing, make noises, say words if it counts as performance or live art we want it. Try out some choreography, a devised piece or maybe just ramble in to a microphone. Basically if you've got live work and you're you're struggling to find a platform to test it on we're for you! 

So if you want to pick at your SCAB and show us what you've got send us an email with an artist bio, a bit about the piece you'll be bringing and its expected length. Send emails to:

The first production of our Fifth Season is the newly written play A Recipe for Sloe Gin by Allan Neve. We’re looking for two performers to fit the below descriptions for an exciting site-specific, profit-share production that’ll be performed 24th-28th July in Cardiff.

The auditions will be held on 28th May from 7-9pm with callbacks potentially on the 1st June 5-7pm. Please email to apply to audition with your CV andheadshot. Rehearsals will begin in June with a flexible schedule, and then will likely be full-time for the full week preceding the performance week that you’d need to be available for. The deadline for applications for auditions is 6pm Friday 25th May and you’ll be notified about your time slot before the auditions on the Monday.

A Recipe for Sloe Gin: Synopsis

Character Biographies:

Lucy (mid-twenties) - University graduate, returning home from a job in London to care for her ill father only to begin drowning in her own isolation.

Charlie (mid-forties) - Retired Newlyn fisherman, widower and recovering alcoholic, weighed down with the struggles of single parenthood.
