Great Expectations: audition call 12 October

Sandra Giorgetti

Open auditions are being held to cast the role of Pip in a new adaptation of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations.

Producers Crowley & Co and Heritage Arts are specifically looking to audition BAME male actors aged 18 to 26 for this leading part.

This fast-paced modern adaptation is set in London with themes of social mobility and the core story of unrequited love and the divide between the rich and the poor.

The auditions will all take place on 12 October at The Old Red Lion Theatre, London. A headshot and acting CV should be e-mailed to by 5PM on 10 October. The e-mail should indicate the applicant's preference for a morning or afternoon audition.

Great Expectations will run at The Old Red Lion Theatre from 12 December.
