We are seeking a dynamic ensemble of 16 actors for the Vancouver premiere of this contemporary masterpiece. Jerusalem, a bold comic vision of life in rural England, was first performed at the Royal Court, London, transferring to The Apollo in NYC. A play that culminates to a final defiant cry against the forces of conformity, The Guardian hailed the play as "unarguably one of the best dramas of the twenty-first century".

Audition Requirements:

By January 1st, you will be given a character and specific sides that you may cold read or prepare for the audition. There will be a reader in attendance.

*A Wiltshire accent from the south of England is invited but not necessary for the audition.

READING COPIES available at UBC library, Vancouver Public Library and by request.

We will cast an energetic and committed ensemble of actors to bring this play to life. Role details and sides will be included in Audition response.

On St Georgeís Day, the morning of the local country fair, officials from Kennet and Avon Council come to evict Johnny ëRoosterí Byron. An ex-stunt driving Romany, Johnny lives in a battered mobile home in the woods, dealing drugs, telling yarns and attracting a motley crew of wastrels and youngsters. Adding to his troubles, Dawn, the mother of his six-year-old son Marky, pays him a visit and berates him for his inability to live up to his responsibilities as a parent. On top of which, the young May Queen due to appear at the fair has gone missing, and Troy, her father, holds Johnny responsible. Through it all, Johnny remains defiant, claiming a mystical affinity with the ancient giants who once inhabited England.
