Audition notice for 'Lovely' by Chris Harris

Ignite Theatre are currently looking for a cast for their next production that is currently in development with local Welsh playwright, Chris Harris, who's previous works include TAITH (Sherman Cymru); Winona (UK Tour); Mutt and Walk on Mars (Aberystwyth Arts Centre).



Cat is a young and vibrant primary school teacher, but a false accusation of assault on a child leads her to fear for her self destruction.


A new play that examines the line between education and parenthood. What happens when a parent points the finger at a teacher when their child has a social issue or behavioural problem, and how can this have such a damaging effect on their career?


This play is written for four actors multi-rolling ten roles and so we are therefore looking for the following:


Cat - (F, 24-28)

Kayleigh / Anna / Liz - (F, 24-30)

Joanna / Celia - (F, 30-40)

Rob / Neil / Rhodri / Paul (M, 30-40)


Auditions will be held on


Barnabas Arts House

New Ruperra Street


NP20 2BB


For the audition, please prepare a contemporary monologue that fits with the character and subject matter of the play. You may also be asked to do some in-hand script work and improvisation.


To CONFIRM attendance to the audition please email your name and the character you are wishing to audition for to


Please note: As a young theatre company, we do not currently have the resources to be able to pay actors an up-front fee. However we do work by profit share, where-by the 4 actors and writer will be compensated with 10% each of the ticket sales. We are therefore looking to work with people who are community focussed and able to work as part of a co-operative that will ensure the success of this production.
