Have your say

Stamford Shoestring Theatre is looking for a black actress to play a key role in its latest production.

The theatre company will show Good People for five nights from Tuesday, September 13. The play, which is by David Lindsay-Abaire and was recently performed at the Hampstead Theatre in London, is a tough, tender play about the insurmountable class divide between those who make it out of a working-class Boston USA ‘neighbourhood’ and those who are left behind.

Featuring a cast of heart-warming characters, humour and pathos it focuses on what it really means to be down on your luck.

Auditions will be held on Wednesday at 7.45pm at Stamford Arts Centre and the production company is keen to recruit an able black amateur actress aged preferably between 25 and 35 for the part of Kate, a young married lecturer in English Literature at Boston University.

To find out more or to express an interest e-mail or ring the director, Ann Stutz on 01780 763805.
