The play takes place in Brumley, an industrial city in the North Midlands in Spring of 1912. It revolves around the Birling family as they celebrate a special occasion.
Arthur Birling 50+, Pompous, prosperous mill owner, self-satisfied with his lot
Sybil Birling Arthur’s wife, 50+, Socially superior to her husband, rather a ‘cold fish’.
Sheila Birling 20+ Pretty, Daughter of Arthur and Sybil
Eric Birling 25+, Son of Arthur and Sybil
Gerald Croft 25+, Sheila’s boyfriend, well-bred, man about town
Edna The maid, any age
Inspector Goole Age uncertain; quietly spoken, seems to know everything. He has an air of mystery about him; must create an atmosphere that the audience finds fascinating.

Four out-of-condition, middle-aged businessmen sent off on a team building exercise in the Lake District succeed in being the first people ever to get shipwrecked on an island on Derwentwater. Bound in fog, menaced by wildlife and cut off from the world, their pathetic attempts to get themselves rescued are hampered by their inability to cooperate as much as by their ineptitude in the Great Outdoors What should have been a bonding process for Gordon, Angus, Roy and Neville turns into a muddy, bloody fight for survival. Because when night settles in, strange things happen out in the wilds. And what took place on Neville's Island that foggy November weekend none of this particular middle-management team would ever forget
The four characters are:
Neville, whom the others have elected Captain and who has promptly proved his unfitness for the post by leading his team confidently in the wrong direction.
Gordon, the dour malcontent whose cruel sarcasm provides many of the play’s funniest one-liners
Angus, the somewhat dim-witted loser who appears to have bought up a camping shop’s entire stock for the trip.
Roy, a born-again Christian who has recently returned to work following a prolonged breakdown – and who is heading, in the play’s considerably darker second half, for a spectacular relapse.
In addition to the audition, I will be having a read-through of Act 1 on Tuesday the 23 November at the theatre starting at 8pm. Do not worry if you cannot come to the read-through, this is simply a way of familiarizing yourself with the play before the audition.
If anyone has any problems attending the audition or has any questions please contact Sean Duxbury on 07976 111209 or use the contact form on this website.
