The Lichfield Garrick theatre is on the hunt for a woman to play Brittania in the forthcoming production of The Entertainer by John Osborne.

The play is being produced by the team behind Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? – the production that starred Matthew Kelly that transferred to London’s West End and received national acclaim.

Tom Roberts, REP Producer, said:

“This is a very special role. It is not a speaking part, but requires the performer to sit as Brittania, together with shield and trident, whilst the play’s central character, Archie Rice, performs his routine. The script does require the actor to be semi nude, so we are looking for someone who is comfortable with their body and happy to show it off. It will be tastefully done and carefully to show off your best side!  This is a great opportunity to perform on stage with experienced professional actors in a classic piece of theatre.”

The Entertainer runs from October 8 to 31. For more information about the role, please call Tom Roberts on 01543 412110.
