Company: Theatre West
Theatre West, the South West’s favourite new writing company, is casting for their new play Everyone is Dead by Charlotte Turner-McMullan which won Theatre West’s ‘Write On Women’ competition earlier this year.
Everyone is dead. Well, most of them are. Kelly is alive for now, trapped in the basement of her house while God-knows-what goes on upstairs. While the unknown men who arrived with knives and golf clubs in the night roam the rooms above. While her dad, who ran off into the dark, probably dies outside in the rain. While she and the woman she met five hours ago try desperately to stay calm and quiet.
How much humanity is left when human beings have practically wiped themselves out of existence? That probably depends how much there was to begin with. In a world of shared trauma and furless badgers, Everyone is Dead delves beneath the surface in a post-apocalyptic world.
Kelly – 17, scrappy but mature for her age. Has lived through a lot of trauma
Ashley – late 30’s/early forties, more cautious and calm under pressure but who is she really?
We are looking to cast 2 South West based actors who enjoy working with new writing and are flexible in presenting the show in quite different spaces.
