Audience With Murder is the opening production for our 2019 season. It is intriguing, multi-layered, witty, and full of unexpected twists.  A Russian doll of a play, it moves from a seemingly innocuous domestic play-reading, through a murder mystery in the classic style, to a final terrifying and violent climax.
The actors play characters in four different plays within the one so there is ample opportunity to stretch your acting self!

George - late 40s/mid-50s
Sally - late 40s/mid-50s
Charles - early to mid-20s
Kim - early to mid-20s

The following should be borne in mind if auditioning:

With Aiden Turner (aka Ross Poldark) in rehearsal for The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Noel Coward Theatre, a new play - A Very Very Very Dark Matter - opening at The Bridge Theatre in the autumn, and an Oscar in the bag for his film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Martin McDonagh is clearly hot property.  BCP are delighted to have been ahead of the curve when selecting his play - The Cripple of Inishmaan - for their 2018/2019 Season back in April 2017. 
Set in 1934, on a small island off the West coast of Ireland and the arrival of a Hollywood film crew on a neighbouring island gives local youngsters the chance
to escape the island and head for the USA. 

Local disabled orphan, Billy, able and bright, and in love with local girl, Helen, is cared for by two aged aunts.  He is derided by the locals and protected by his aunts. Desperate to audition, to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life, Billy persuades a local fisherman to take him to the neighbouring island by telling him he is dying of TB.  Billy is cast in the film and goes to the USA. 

What does he discover about Hollywood? Will he return home to ‘get the girl’?   
The Cripple of Inishmaan runs 11-14 July 2018 at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury, OX16 5QE – curtain up 7.30pm.  Tickets are available from The Mill Box Office on 01295 279002 or online.

Come along to see the master wordsmith McDonagh in action!

Includes very strong language
