Auditions for Garden Suburb Theatre

Garden Suburb Theatre – an award winning amateur dramatics company in Hampstead Garden Suburb – are holding open auditions for their April production of Sandi Toksvig’s ‘Silver Lining’

The Play:

On a dark and stormy night in the Upper Day Room of the Silver Retirement Home, five elderly people are trading stories of their (un)remarkable lives. But with a Biblical storm brewing outside, the flood waters rising, and no rescue team in sight, the residents are faced with the realistion that in order to survive they are going to have to do what they have done for their entire lives – do it themselves! 

It’s The Golden Girls meets The Great Escape. 

Silver Lining is a hilarious comedy by beloved TV host, comedian, and writer; Sandi Toksvig. This hilarious play was written because Sandi didn’t see any good parts for women-of-a-certain age in theatre. And remedied this with a hugely funny and heartfelt script filled with interesting, strong, well-rounded characters and it’s a real joy to be putting this on in the heart of Highgate at an incredible professional theatre; Upstairs at the Gatehouse. 

We welcome (with open arms) anyone that wants to join this group; as an actor, someone behind the scenes, in a creative role or even just as a proud member of our audience.
