Firstly, thank you all for voting. Given the record level of participation, the committee made a decision to forward plan the May 2019 production. Therefore, the play that was runner-up will be nominated for the May production. It was a close race with Sylvia’s Wedding becoming the eventual winner. The runner up was Blast from the Past (New Writing).
Auditions for Sylvia’s Wedding will be held on Thursday 6th September 2018 at 7.30pm at the Friendship Club, Oxford Road North, London W4 4DN. Scripts will be available at the audition. The play will be directed by Hazel Colllinson.
Vic- Joyce’s husband 50s-60s
Sylvia – Vic and Joyce’s daughter, 32
Myrtle- Stanley’s wife, 50-60s
Gordon- Stanley and Myrtle’s son, 32
Gordon proposes to Sylvia, after ten years of courting, and throws his family, and Sylvia’s into turmoil. Joyce and Vic, Sylvia’s parents, are hardly the sort of people Gordon’s pompous father, Stanley wants his family connected with, and Vic feels much the same in return. Sylvia’s best friend, Yvonne, isn’t much help either-as she’s all to ready to deflate Sylvia’s joy with her cynical, world-weary comments. Against the odds, the two warring families co-operate in the wedding preparations and all looks set for success- but fate intervenes.
If you wish to audition but cannot make this date please get in touch with Hazel on 020 8248 6615.
We look forward to seeing as many as you as possible.
