North London Actors (NLA) require two Black actors for a semi staged rehearsed reading of a new play by an ex BBC investigative journalist called 'The Concrete Jungle.'
The play looks at what happens when an investigative journalist, who is very good at gaining the confidence of the people she interviews, puts an idea to her superior at the corporation. She will go out into the field and present the world of drugs, with the dealer and users in a direct, truthful and unvarnished manner.
Will she be misled and betrayed by her superiors and will she in turn unknowingly and unwittingly betray the subjects of her investigation?
- NLA require a Black actor in his 20's to play the part of Ray, the drug dealer;
- NLA also require a Black actress to play the part of Samantha, mid thirties to mid forties, a friend of the journalist.
Both speak with a Northern accent. The reading will take place on Monday June 22nd at Regents University (8-10 minute walk from Baker street tube) with a rehearsal on Sunday 21st.
