Chichester, West Sussex

The Railway Woman

We will be hosting auditions between the 2nd and 6th of November 2020 in Chichester, West Sussex.

TFL Creative Media have an exciting opportunity, as we are hosting open casting calls for our newest short film, “The Railway Woman”.
We will be shooting between the 22nd to the 26th of February 2021. We are looking for a range of different actors with some musical and dance experience for each role.

THE STORY:

“The Railway Woman” follows Alice, a young teenager with a deep passion for steam locomotives, who faces uncertainty in a male dominated environment. This musical will defy societal expectations, by exploring the journey of this queer, autistic woman, when she faces the scrutiny from her peers leading to an accident that she causes”

THE ROLES:

[ALICE]Female, 17-19, Autistic, Dyspraxic, Bi-Sexual. Tall, funny, passionate, expressive, with deep anger issues. She tends to rant when being social with people, but does not like them getting to close, due to her sensory issues. She may put on a front for most people yet is rather empathic with a bit of a rebellious streak in her and is very proficient with a bo-staff. MAIN ROLE.
(it would be authentic to have an actor who is genuinely in the Autistic Spectrum, however we welcome all candidates regardless)

[GRAHAM] Male, 30s/40s, Open ethnicity. Bald head, stocky build, blunt demeanour, with a no-nonsense attitude. Holds disdain towards Alice, he is one of the higher ups on the railway and does not like to take the time to understand the volunteers with disabilities. Preferring to progress and spend time with volunteers with less complications, he is very much a "one of the lads" type of person. SUPPORTING ROLE.

[DANNY] Male, 17-19, Open ethnicity. Dark hair, skinny build,with glasses, lacking confidence, but funny. A mostly silent individual, though knows when to make people laugh and is very compassionate towards people. He’s friends with Alice, but this is motivated by a crush he has on her that he doesn’t have the courage to mention to her. SUPPORTING ROLE.

[CHARLIE] Male, 20s, Open ethnicity. Strong biceps or toned arm muscles, with a cockney accent. Very pragmatic, rather cocky, takes working with machines seriously and has almost forgotten the reason why he became avolunteer.He takes after Graham as "one of the lads" and is more or less Graham's apprentice without the title. SUPPORTING ROLE.

If you are interested in auditioning, please email our producer with either a showreel or a brief sum up of your experience, why you would like to audition and which role you would like to audition for.

Please email us at directorwithaclearvision@gmail.com

RASA AUR DRAMA TIMES NEWSLETTER

Cinema and multi-plexes are re-opening from tomorrow with strict measures to public safety. Auditoriums are yet to start functioning. A new theatre venue like THE BOX has come up. It is helping is theatre groups to record and stream their plays online. There is no activity yet at venues like Sudarshan Rangmanch, Bal Gandharva Rang Mandir, The Monalisa Kalagram, Yashwantrao Chavan Natyagruha. Online theatre platforms like OMT ( Online Mazha Theatre ), Priyadarshi Academy, Gyaan Adab Centre is live streaming play readings to keep the energy engaged. Priyadarshi Academy last month organized online speech classes. Aasakta Kalamanch this weekend streamed the new play The COLOUR OF LOSS. Ticketkhidakee.com a new ticketing platform for the theatre is streaming digital theatre the world over. The Company Theatre workspace in Kamshet opened a small site-specific play on its lush theatre research laboratory. Pune Theatre Guide completed two events of the Young Theatre Director's Talk. Pushkar Rangmanch is planning a production! Rangaii Theatre performed GARGIKAND over the weekend. IAPAR has been doing online talks and dance workshops. What we saw is more of discussions about meta-theatre or discussions around the theatre. Theatre practitioner Hina Siddiqui is taking writing workshops! The Box has certainly set a precedent in the city with slowly-reopening. Slowly re-opening performances around a venue in a part of the city with correct leadership to handly sanitization may help us all. Also, attaching in this week's newsletter a video made by a theatre group MA-YI Theatre Company. Originally a theatre company but they have also opened their own studio for production and rental. Have a lovely week ahead!

Historical amateur dramatics

Hi, I’m not sure if this is the right place to enquire, so apologies in advance if so.
I am trying to find info on a distant relative. I have a newspaper cutting saying she belonged to the West Sussex players. She played in The Queen and the Rebels, I think early 60’s, and Witness for the prosecution in 1959. Her name is Elizabeth Marriott.
Is there any kind of archive for past plays/actors and actresses in amateur dramatics? Or could you point in a direction where I might find more info, would love to know what other parts she played.
Many thanks,
Claire

Peter's response:

Hi Claire,

I'm afraid I don't have any information on the West Sussex Players and I don't know of any archive for actors / actresses appearing in amateur theatre. Certainly in the early 60s there wouldn't have been digital records. I have found a website http://www.westsussex.info/theatre-groups.shtml West Sussex info which contains a section on theatre groups. I couldn't see the Players listed but they may have someone on staff who might remember?

I will post your query in the #Advice section of www.dramagroups.com asking anyone who is able to help to contact you directly via your email address.

I wish you luck in your search and would be interested to hear if you are successful in tracking your relative down.

Best Wishes,

Peter

After The Turn: The Mystery of Bly Manor by Nine Knocks Theatre

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

Review date: 17th Aug 2020

Edinburgh Fringe venue The Space has created a range of online productions that are available between 8th-30th August 2020 during the time in which the Festival would have been taking place. With lockdown taking its toll on the entire Arts and Theatre industry many productions have created online performances.

One of the productions available is After the Turn: The Mystery of Bly Manor which has been written and directed by George Cooper and Ellie Hardwick the writing duo have set their piece five years on from Henry James’s novella The Turn of the Screw.

The television-style documentary production uses interviews from friends and family to piece together the events leading up to the mysterious tragedy surrounding Theodora (Eilidh Gibson). The main focus in presenting the evidence takes the form of video diary entries which she had left behind. These are sensitively presented by her dear friend Marcus Bryson (Brian Weldich).

Theodora Hill was hired as the governess for the two Bly children Miles and Flora while in residence at Bly Manor. The excitement and enthusiasm in accepting her new role are short-lived as a stranger appears unsettling her and causing immense anxiety. The dark and eerie mystery surrounding Bly Manor soon begins to unfold before her.

The gripping short ghost story created by James in 1898 has been captured in this modernised version. The cast brilliantly succeeded in creating the horror and dread first bought to life through the original novella.

It’s extremely tempting with a production of this calibre to write an in-depth review explaining everything that they have achieved. However, I don’t want to spoil anyone’s enjoyment of the chilling performances. Therefore, I would strongly urge you to take the time to watch it while it’s available online.

As creatives have begun to produce work during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is one of the exceptional examples available until August 30th. Nine Knocks Theatre company have shown the wealth of talented actors in their company along with their ability to create a powerful and atmospheric performance without actually being on the same stage.

Four Stars.

Hi there!

A team of filmmakers at the London Film School are on the lookout for a composer with a passion for musical theatre and comedy to help our writer and director with the original soundtrack on a brand new film set to start shooting in September.
