First Bus To Ballinabeg – Audition
Sunday 18-July at 2pm
First Bus To Ballinabeg is a black comedy set in the far West of Ireland close to the border with the North. It has shades of Martin McDonagh mixed with Brian Friel.
We’re casting several great character roles. The ability to carry a convincing Irish accent is desirable but a feel for the rhythm and musicality of spoken Irish is more important.
Don’t let lack of an accent put you off.
