When John takes a break from his boyfriend, M, he teams up with a woman, W, he meets on his daily commute. Filled with guilt and indecision, John struggles to find a way to square the eternal triangle. The three finally meet at a dinner party with John’s father, F, an unlikely guest.

Writer, Mike Bartlett, is very specific about how he wants his play presented: no set, no furniture, no props - just the actors and the words.

John and M: I am looking for two men with playing ages probably in their late twenties or early to mid-thirties; M is the more openly aggressive character.

W: a woman in much the same age range; happy to take on anyone who tries to cross her.

F: old enough to be John’s father. Age range likely to be 60 upwards with no real upper limit. Rather conventional and insists on calling W ‘sweetheart’.

For the audition, you will be asked to prepare various scenes which we will read together. If possible, I like to decide casting on the night so there isn’t that awful wait for a phone-call, text, round robin email, silence etc.
