This fast paced British farce concerns a con artist who has duped the welfare authorities for years by claiming every type of benefit for the innumerable people he claims live at his address. Just when he decides to kill off many of the imaginary dole recipients because matters are getting a bit too risky, welfare investigators show up. To outwit the investigators, the con artist enlists help from one of his real lodgers and from his Uncle George.
There will be a video campaign to market the play.
Actors will be required to record pieces to camera and participate in a video trailer for marketing on social media. To ensure this amazing play has a full audience, all cast members will be encouraged to share video clips on social media channels. Each actor will experience growth not only on stage, but will be gain camera performing experience as well.
Assistant Director Needed:
The director will lean heavily on the AD in this production. We require the AD to attend every rehearsal and to not only record blocking and prompt but to run the full rehearsal while the director works individually with cast members or on video marketing strategy. Once handed over after dress rehearsal, the AD will also be required to stage manage the show.
