Audition Notice: Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris
or a copy of script or if you are interested but cant make audition please contact.
Acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, when it opened at the Royal Court in 2010, this smash hit dark and satirical comedy moved on and played to great acclaim at Wyndhams in 2011 winning the Olivier Award for best new play.
In 1959 in a suburb of Chicago, Russ and Bev are selling their desirable three bed roomed bungalow at a knock-down price. This enables the first black family to move into the neighbourhood, creating ripples of discontent amongst the cosy white urbanites of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by Lindsey and Steve whose plans to raze the house and start again is met with a similar response. Hailed shockingly entertaining and appallingly funny this devastating satire explores the ever contentious themes of race and property ownership from two time periods and leaves the audience asking whether the issues festering beneath the floorboards are actually the same despite the 50 year time difference.
Norriss play nails the thorny subject of race relations with a bilious zest that takes ones breath away. Guardian
The play is structured in such a way that all of the cast members play 2 different roles at two different time periods. The roles are significantly different so the audition will give the opportunity for actors to read both characters. The play contains VERY STRONG language. All actors will need to be able to deliver a credible American accent. The pace is very fast moving, often overlapping and lines will need to be learnt early. Rehearsals will begin at the beginning of February and are likely to be 4 per week. The ages are approximate and as long as a differential is maintained there is flexibility.

I was only with Explore talent 2 weeks and I got my first audition for a part in the stage play Cincinnati 28. It got me and the rest of the cast members a lot of exposure and it opened doors for me. Thanks so much Explore Talent Demoine
