Disabled actor needed for leading role


The Cotswold Players in Stroud are looking to cast a disabled woman in a leading role. 

‘Misconceptions’ is under consideration for possible production in the 2024-25 season and the award winning non-professional company is looking for a wheelchair user to portray a female university student – credible on stage as aged between 19 and mid-twenties. 

Such opportunities are rare, and consequently there is not a pool of experienced local disabled people to draw on.

Writer-director Philip Douch said: “Fran is a fantastic character to play – feisty, assertive and vulnerable. And the play itself is emotional, funny and thought-provoking. It would be great to offer an opportunity like this to a local disabled woman – either someone who has acted before or someone who has never been given the chance but might have bags of potential.”
Auditions will be held between now and 16th May on a mutually convenient date. Anyone interested should contact Philip as soon as possible at douchphilip@gmail.com or on 07847 664359.
