London Showcase Reading of a New Play Planned

VALEDICTION - casting will soon be underway for the first London table read of a new play by award winning author Wayne Adrian Drew.

The play moves between a country parsonage in 1795 and a London residence in 1880. 

A true story, based on new research, it counterpoints two relationships on which social constraints impact with tragic results. 

The following actors are required for this first reading that may lead to a one night paid charity showcase rehearsed reading, before an audience of both the general public and senior professionals from the film, television & theatre industries, in early December.

Excellent sight reading is essential and the  ability to deliver witty period dialogue.
