Auditions for The Chalk Garden by Enid Bagnold
Friday, January 27th between 7 & 9 pm and Saturday January 28th from 3-5pm
The Story: Miss Madrigal is hired as a governess without references, after other governesses have fled, to look after the precocious (she also loves to set fires) granddaughter Laurel of Mrs. St Maugham a dyed-in-the-wool British dowager. Mrs. St Maugham lives in her country house in a village in Sussex, where the garden is composed of lime and chalk. She is assisted by a valet, Maitland, who endures much from both his employer and her granddaughter. After Miss Madrigal is hired, she thoroughly changes how things are handled in the household. Olivia, Laurel’s mother, who has remarried, arrives for a visit and wishes to take her daughter with her which is opposed by Mrs. St Maugham. When a Judge comes to the house for lunch, he reveals something about Miss Madrigal (she is a convicted murderer) that threatens her position in the house. The play is billed as a psychological thriller.
The production will run from Friday, April 28th, 2017 – Sunday May 7th, 2017. Show times are 7:30 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, nights, and 2pm Sunday matinees. At present, rehearsals are planned for Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evenings. Please make sure you are available for all dates and times.
