Casting breakdown for Spring Tour 2012

Fragments of Ash



Notional Theatre is looking for a company of wonderfully talented South Wales-based actors who are comfortable with both physical and narrative storytelling for the tour of Fragments of Ash. The play, described as “spine-tingling and intense” (Three Weeks) was first produced, to universally excellent reviews, at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe. This tour is supported by the Arts Council of Wales.


A company wage reflects the ensemble nature of the piece. Fee-based contract formed on Equity agreements. Accommodation when away from base and per diems as appropriate. A seven week commitment from April 16th to June 2nd.


The small-scale nature of the tour will mean that all cast and crew work together on get-ins and get-outs.


Eleanor mid-30s, plays down to mid-teens

An ‘ordinary’ British military wife and mother. A challenging central role in an emotional drama.  

Must have a South Wales base.


Ken – 40ish. A really likeable bloke. Must be a versatile actor – some doubling and choreographed movement will be involved.

Must have a South Wales base.


Rashida – mid-30s, down to mid-teens.

An Afghan woman who exists in the imagination of Eleanor. This role is almost entirely danced; great acting skills required.

Must have a South Wales base.


Jay/Farzam/Ash: playing age 20ish, down to mid-teens. This is a demanding role for a very physical and talented actor.

Must have a South Wales base.


All submissions to Auditions will be held in Cardiff.


If you know our director, Terry Victor, personally you are invited to get in touch directly.
