    Auditions for The Noble Pursuit

    King's Town Players will hold open auditions for performances of The Noble Pursuit, written by local playwright Douglas Bowie and directed by Michael Catlin.

    The Play

    Pre-eminent man of letters Noble Harmsworth is on the verge of becoming the first Canadian winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature - but if the Nobel pooh bahs want to lionize him, why does Lyle Lemmerman want to kill him? A devoted acolyte, a nosey critic, a dyspeptic agent, a missing manuscript all add to the twists and turns in this suspenseful comedy about literary fame and fortune.

    Characters

    Lyle Lemmerman (male - 35-45)

    Abigail Bliss (female - 30-40)

    Noble Harmsworth (male - 60-70)

    Percy Fawcett (male - 40-50)

    Jasmine Maxwell (female - 40-50)

    AUDITIONS: We are looking for five adult actors to play a role in this production. Auditions will be held at the King's Town Arts Studio (202-506 Days Road, Kingston) on November 30th and December 1st, with callbacks later (if necessary). Auditions are open to anyone in the community so come and out and be a part of the show.

    Written by Sean Branney and Andrew Leman
    Adapted from the novel by H.P. Lovecraft
