What do you need to be involved as a Performer?:
Virtual play reading requires actors who possess a sense of adventure, the ability to bring a story to life in this unique medium and a good internet connection.

About Gone To Glory:
Elderly sisters Winnie and Lulu live in a shack by the river. Their unexpected involvement in a documentary film on poverty reveals a story of love, survival and strength of the human spirit.
First Produced: 1986 by the Blyth Festival.
Gone To Glory Casting Notes:
LULU - early sixties
Lulu's life has offered few fulfillments beyond those which her own good humor can discover. Years of economic privation and social isolation have not destroyed her buoyant spirit.
WINNIE - 80+
Lulu's only remaining family. Before illness, frustration -and poverty made her irritable, Winnie was a pretty girl with conventional aspirations to home and family.
GOOGIE - early forties (trying to pass for early thirties)
An insecure woman with expensive tastes, newly vulnerable to the hazards of divorce. Until now her life has been relatively sheltered and fear and inexperience make her foolish.
BAKPAK - early twenties
A natural vagabond with a carefree heart. There is no malice in him and only enough guile to make him an able survivor.
TEDDI - late twenties
An ambitious, determined, talented young woman. The tough competition of the film world makes her ’tough-minded’. She does not suffer fools gladly.
PUG - any age
A good cameraman. Patient, even tempered; undemonstrative but observant.
Thanks for your interest, see you soon!
