Bob Larbey is probably better known for The Good Life, Ever Decreasing Circles and A Fine Romance to name but a few.
A Month of Sundays is set in a retirement home somewhere in leafy Surrey. The two main characters, Cooper and Aylott, spend their time planning their escape, playing chess, and drinking whisky.
There are four lovely cameo roles which the characters can make their own. The daughter and son-in-law of Cooper who visit him on the first Sunday in the month. Wilson, the attractive young nurse and Mrs Baker the cleaning lady who adds to the comedy.
The play is a black comedy, perceptively written with many laugh out loud lines. The audience should leave feeling uplifted and hopeful that all is not lost when old age approaches.

Auditions take place in advance of productions to allow the Director to assemble the cast. Each Director has his/her own way of auditioning; some prefer to read straight from the text, others choose to try improvisation; some a mixture of both. Auditions can often be a lot of fun, and gives an actor a chance to try out for different parts.
At Theatre 62 we like to welcome new faces to the stage as well as longer-standing regulars. Most auditions are ‘open’, which means non-members are welcome to come along and audition. If you are successful you will need to join Theatre 62 (for a small fee) as a Full Member.
Auditions are held at Wickham Theatre Centre, location here.
