This is a touching tale of friendship, a critical look at authority and control. It has adult themes and strong language.
Auditions will be held in groups. Each auditionee to prepare a 1-3 minute monologue. There will then be cold readings in the group. If you can do an American accent that would be great but they will not necessarily be used in the show.
