SYNOPSIS: Bella Manningham is being slowly driven insane. Can Inspector Rough of Scotland Yard save her sanity and her life from the machinations of a diabolical murderer? Journey back to Victorian London in this suspense-filled thriller.
Need 2 men and 3 women (all 18+)
Mr. Manningham: He is tall, good-looking, about forty-five. He is heavily moustached and bearded and perhaps a little too well dressed. His manner is suave and authoritative, with a touch of mystery and bitterness.
Mrs. Manningham: She is about thirty-four. She has been good-looking, almost a beauty — but now she has a haggard, wan, frightened air, with rings under her eyes, which tell of sleepless nights and worse.
Elizabeth: She is a stout, amiable, subservient woman of fifty.
Nancy: She is a self-conscious, pretty, cheeky girl of nineteen.
Inspector Rough: He is middle-aged — greying, short, wiry, active, brusque, friendly, overbearing. He has a low, warm chuckle and completely dominates the scene from the beginning.
The audition will consist of a cold reading of various sections of the script. Headshots and resumes are encouraged but not required.
