Private Fears in Public Places

by Alan Ayckbourne, directed by Robert Gairey

Audition Form – Private Fears in Public Places

Audition Pack – Private Fears in Public Places

“Private Fears in Public Places” is a dramatic comedy by Alan Ayckbourn, written and first performed in 2004. It’s a fairly serious poignant play about a group of five thirty-somethings, in a tightly connected series of stories across over 50 short scenes.  The themes are those of loneliness, missed opportunities, and people’s inability to communicate – and comprise effective character studies, giving some lovely opportunities for the cast to get underneath their characters.  There are no small roles in this play – the size of roles for each of the six characters is roughly equal.  It is a very thoughtful piece, with an air of melancholy, though there are elements of comedy.

AUDITIONS: Saturday 23 September, callbacks Friday 29 September. See audition pack for more info and get in touch with the director (email address in audition pack) if you would like to audition but are unable to attend on the given dates/times.

Tuesday 6 – Saturday 10 February 2024 19:30 with a matinee 14:30 on the Saturday. Performances will be in the Seligman Theatre in Chapter.
