Casting call - Common Wealth - Nationalisation!

\NATIONALISATON! (Working title)


Nationalisation! is a bold, site-specific play that explores what it would feel like for a community to commonly own our public utilities (gas, water, electricity, transport, post, etc) and imagines a time when this would be possible. We will be working with a community cast and a full creative team to create a powerful atmosphere of celebration and community spirit. This is an R&D week supported by National Theatre Wales in The Gurnos, Merthyr, South Wales with acclaimed, award winning theatre company Common Wealth.

  • One female actor to play Sue aged 50-60 years old. Sue was active throughout the miners strikes and is active in the resurgence of Nationalisation. Sue is passionate and loyal to her community. Must have South Wales Valley’s accent.
