AUDITION PREPARATION:
For speaking parts, you must prepare a 2-3 minute monologue from a play of your choice. Please do not choose a speech from Enron. You are welcome to audition for a specific role or for any part. Ensemble parts will have just as much to do as main roles and will all involve speaking. Please also make sure you arrive on time, wearing comfortable clothing.

 

SYNOPSIS:
2019. Financial crisis behind us, right? Wrong. Lucy Prebble's epic drama charts the rise and glorious fall of Enron, the American energy company that became the setting for one of history's most infamous financial scandals. Greed, sex and power combine in this landmark play of the 21st century, which is as potent and scandalous as when it premiered. In light of Brexit and our uncertain future, what lessons have we learnt to help us avoid future catastrophe? Join us for an immersive experience that will shock, seduce and enthral, as Putney becomes Texas, and greed becomes everyone’s game.
