Audition Notice

THE OPPOSITE SEX  a comedy by David Tristram

Directed by Hazel Phillips

Playing dates 24 – 29 June 2019

Readings/audition  Thursday 7 March at 7.30pm

When the Avon lady calls she recognises Mark, and when she and her husband are invited to dinner he recognises Mark’s wife…

What should have been a pleasant evening turns into a nightmare and it is not long before they all realise what the common denominator between them is and all hell breaks loose! This is a side-splitting adult comedy.

There is a lot of rapid dialogue and physical ‘business’ required for this play and good comic timing is very important. I can be flexible on ages as long as all four are of a similar age.
