One Male And One Female Actor for WW1 Play ‘We Were Enemies’

Llandudno, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

We Were Enemies is a play set between 1915 and 1916. It explores the life of a British and a German family and their struggles as they are eventually thrust together by conflict and the things that unite them as humans.

The play will be shown in a theatre in North West Wales which is to be confirmed, so ideally I’d be looking to hear from actors from that area for logistical reasons.

Sam Ackley - Male Lead

We see Sam mature and change as the play goes on as the experiences he encounters shapes him. He starts off as naive and sweet but becomes sure and aggressive. Despite his cockyness he still retains his good heart and loyalty. Sam is from a working class background. Northern or Welsh or similar so a convincing accent will be ideal.

Male, aged 18 to 25

Gertrude Strauss - Female Supporting

Gertrude is married to Walter who is conscripted into the German Imperial Army. But, she has her own skeletons in her closet. Their marriage is one of convenience which served its purpose at the time. She is feisty and knows what she wants. She has a taste for the finer things but has nowhere near the means to live the life she wants. She isn’t a bad person but she is prepared to do bad things to get what she wants, including sacrificing others.
