Our friends at Bath Drama are auditioning for the fabulously dark comedy - 'Loot' by Joe Orton

Audition Details...

Bath Drama’s autumn show will be the dark farce ‘Loot’ by Joe Orton to be directed by James Dennis.

Auditions will be on Thursday 3rd and Wednesday 9th May, both sessions starting at 7.30pm at the Bath Drama Hut.

Show week will be the w/c 7th October, with performances on the 10th – 13th October 2018

'Loot' satirises the Roman Catholic church, social attitudes to life and death, relationships, and the integrity of the police force, and has potential for a fantastic piece of ensemble work.
