Sunday 21 May at 10:00am
Absent Friends
by Alan Ayckbourn
Performance dates 5 - 10 February 2018
Diana has organised a tea party to cheer up old friend Colin, whose fiancée has recently drowned, but several of the invitees are less than happy about the idea. As the afternoon progresses, deep problems within the group are revealed, and wounds and anxieties are contrasted sharply by the surprising happiness of their bereaved friend. A hilarious play with a disturbing underbelly.
Characters:

Colin - A sweet-natured, optimistic sort.
Paul - An old friend of Colin. Complacent, self-centred and a bit of a womaniser.
Diana - Paul's kind and unhappy wife.
John - Another friend and Paul's employee. Inept and socially ill-at-ease.
Evelyn - John's bored, sullen wife who has a small baby.
Marge - Wife of the unseen and constantly ill Gordon..
If you are interested in reading for any of the above roles but would like to discuss anything before the audition date, please contact the director,, Vanessa Comer, on vcomer333@gmail.com. Copies of the script are available if you wish to look at the play as a whole but no prior preparation is necessary for the audition.
