THE OLD VIC'S US/UK EXCHANGE READINGS – Monday 30th April 2007
With The Old Vics transfer of A Moon for the Misbegotten to Broadway, Old Vic New Voices (the Theatre's education department) is showcasing the work and talents of the hottest emerging British and American talent.
The British practitioners are all members of The Old Vic's New Voices Club our professional development programmed aimed at supporting the very best young London-based actors, directors, writers and producers.
Two readings will take place on Monday 30th April at the Kirk Theatre, Theatre Row at 4pm and 7pm:
4pm Going After Alice by Megan Mostyn-Brown, directed by New Voices Club director Lucy Kerbel After their son is killed by a suicide bomber, the already fractured Robertsons must face their grief and learn how to be a family again. Megans other works include Girl, The Secret Lives of Losers, 4th of July, The Hawk Has No Home, Lizards and The Rest of Your Life.
7pm – Stoopud F*cken Animals by Joel Horwood, directed by Ari Edelson (artistic director, US/UK Exchange)
For brothers Charlie and Dim, life in their rural backwater hasn't changed for years. But when Bruno, a prize bull, loses his libido it sets an old farm cowboy on a collision course with Charlie and Dims home town, and their best-kept secrets.
The first Western to be set in rural England, Stoopud F*ucken Animals is a tragic tale, comically told. The play showcases the talent of New Voices Club actor, Michael Cox and is produced by New Voices Club producer, David Luff.
Both readings will be followed by drinks, with the opportunity to chat to our New Voices Club members (biographies below for your information). We do hope that you can join us.

With best wishes
