James McGarrity

This role is the more demanding of the two with approximately 85% of the dialogue. If applying please be aware that you will be playing a man in his late 40s-mid 50s, so if you are younger than this age range you will need to be convincing and credible as this character. We will work on a suitable dialect/accent towards building the part.

Also please do not apply if auditioning and rehearsing in Glasgow twice weekly would present a problem to you in terms of travel.

Father Jack Bannon

This role demands an actor capable of convincingly portraying a priest in his early/late 50s. Therefore please be aware of this when applying, as if you cannot credibly achieve this through your physicality and acting prowess, then you’d be wasting your time and ours.

Please only apply if you are based in or close to Glasgow for ease of travel in attending weekly rehearsals.
