An unpredictable, oddly coiffed, leader threatens the world with massive firepower (take your pick). The finger presses the button. What happens next? This darkly disturbing two-hander is based on the early 1980’s civil defence pamphlet, Protect and Survive. Jim and Hilda Bloggs are an ordinary, working-class couple caught up in extraordinary circumstances. Armed only with a screwdriver, emergency rations and a protractor from their son’s old geometry kit they set about building a make-shift shelter. But will it be enough to save them from the Powers-That-Be?
I am looking for two actors (one m, one f) with a playing age of 65+. You will need to learn the audition pieces so I am confident you are ok at remembering all those lines!
Because of inevitable rehearsal clashes, I won’t be able to use anyone who is cast in the preceding production, King Charles III.
