AUDITION RESULTS FOR AGATHA CHRISTIE’S “MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS”
Adapted for the stage by Ken Ludwig.
Directed by David W. Mitchell
Thank you to all who auditioned!
Casting is never easy for any director; nor is it ever cut and dried. Having 33 people auditioning for 11 roles, it all the more difficult. Please remember that auditioning is never a measure of talent. If you weren’t cast, please try again when we hold auditions for “What The Bellhop Saw”.
To those who were cast, please watch your email for rehearsal information. We will begin shortly after the new year.

Another Country is loosely based on the life of the spy Guy Burgess, renamed "Guy Bennett" in the play. It examines the effect his homosexuality and exposure to Marxism has on his life, and the hypocrisy and snobbery of the English public school he attends. The setting is a 1930s public school where pupils Guy Bennett and Tommy Judd become friends because they are both outsiders. Bennett is openly homosexual, while Judd is a Marxist.
