Auditions! No Sex Please, We're British

The Gaslight Theater will be holding auditions for the farce No Sex Please, We're British on March 24th and March 25 at 6pm at Hallowell City Hall Auditorium (One Winthrop Street in Hallowell).

Excellent parts are available for 4 women and 7 men, ages mid 20ish to 40's or 50s.

No Sex Please, We're British is by Anthony Marriott and Alistair Foot and is directed by Richard Bostwick

The auditions will involve directed cold readings from the script and may be followed by some improvisation.

The Plot:

A young bride who lives above a bank with her husband who is the assistant manager, innocently sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware. What comes is Scandinavian pornography. The plot revolves around what is to be done with the veritable floods of pornography, photographs, books, films, and eventually girls that threaten to engulf this happy couple. The matter is considerably complicated by the man's mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, a police superintendent, and a muddled friend who does everything wrong in his reluctant efforts to set everything right, all of which works up to a hilarious ending of closed or slamming doors. This farce ran in London over eight years and also delighted Broadway audiences.
