Call for directors – 2023

With our November production of ‘The Gathered Leaves’ beginning rehearsals shortly, it’s time to turn our attention to next year.

We anticipate two productions in the Drama Studio, in March/April 2023 and in November 2023. The exact dates are still to be confirmed with the Studio. It’s hoped that an additional small-scale production at a different venue, possibly outdoors, will also be possible in June/July 2023

If you are interested in directing either of the two productions in March/April or November, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

For next year, we’re particularly interested in well-known plays and authors that might prove especially attractive to potential audiences. Ideally we would like at least one of the productions to have a fairly large cast, with a reasonable mix of male and female roles, to maximise opportunities for members to take part. Traditionally our larger cast productions have taken place in the November slot, but this is not cast in stone. 

If you’d like to offer to direct, it would be helpful if you could propose more than one play you’d like us to consider, but if there’s a single play you have a particular desire to direct, please also let us know. In all cases, please give us the number and gender split of roles, a brief note on why you would like to direct the play, an indication of which slot or slots you would be available for, and any production ideas you may have at this stage.

Please send any proposals to Ian, the Chair of SUDS, at by Wednesday 31 August. If you’re interested but unsure about any aspects of directing for SUDS, please feel free to contact Ian.
