As part of our approach to casting for this production, we are actively searching for people who meet the profile outlined here, we are in touch with agents, have completed searches on Mandy and Spotlight but also wanted to open out to responses through an open call as we are open to hear from those either represented or unrepresented. 

The timeline is much shorter than we would have liked – apologies if you feel this timeline excludes you. We want to do better in future giving applicants a longer time period in which to respond.
