A Cure for a Cuckold
8pm, Mon 30th Oct @ Judith E. Wilson Drama Studio

Free

What do you do when you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that your wife has cheated on you? If you're a Shakespearean tragic hero, you kill her, very few questions asked. If you're a sailor named Compass, however, the solution is a bit different...

Join the Marlowe Society as we set out on a new venture--exploring the lesser-performed plays of the early modern period through script-in-hand stagings. This year, we start with the expectation-shattering A Cure for a Cuckold, John Webster's neglected comedy about love, friendship, and trust.

Presented in partnership with the Centre for Mediaeval and Early Modern Law and Literature, the evening will include a panel discussion on the legal issues invoked by the play. Tickets are free, but space is limited!

ONE DAY COMMITMENT! FRESHERS WELCOME!

The Vault series, of which Cuckold is part, operates a bit strangely. We cast ahead of time and send out scripts with lots of notes and ideas in them. The actors get familiar with their parts, then we start first thing on the day of performance, work all day, and have a fully-staged reading prepped and ready to go that night. Sounds fun, right? It's a bit mad (in the best possible way) and a great way for people looking for short-term commitments to work on a fun project. After all, it's just a day!

We're looking for a big cast this year, all gender- and race-blind. Auditions 2-5 on the 17th. Sign-ups are here:
