Auditions – “And So Say All Of Us”

BATS Theatre Co. Inc. AUDITIONS

“And So Say All Of Us”

Comedy

Written by Ian Austin, Directed by John McMahon

From The Director

This play came about from a discussion in 1992 between the late Beryl Crosby and playwright Ian Austin, when Beryl complained there were no parts for old ladies (she was 82 at the time). Ian turned up with this play a couple of days later and I stage managed because Beryl was my mother in law.

Synopsis

A simple 25th wedding anniversary becomes a riotous disaster with high society hi-jinks, low life double crosses, mistaken identities, old affairs resurfacing, new affairs foundering – AND PIGS.

This is a fast paced very funny comedy with the action taking place on the back patio at the home of Harry and Dolly Doncaster as they prepare to celebrate 25 years of marriage.
