    Thanks for the suggestion- it has now been added to the list. When and where is the production and what part are you going to play?

      A friend of mine is directing next term(I’m at drama school). I’m playing a character callled Lucille – its set in Victorian times, around the time of the publication of “Origin of Species”.
