Actor/writer/Presenter needed for the London Literary Pub Crawl.

Our successful three-hour tour of the Pubs and haunts of famous writers in Soho and Fitzrovia goes out every Saturday at 5pm and often in the week.  We are looking for one or two actors who can entertain and host our audiences, who tend to be more interested in the literature than the booze!  Although there is a script to learn and follow, much of the attraction of our offering is that it is hosted by artists who have an affinity with the lives and conditions of the writers we include. For details of the tour see www.LondonLiteraryPubCrawl.com 

Fee: £40 per 3 hour show.  £50 for parties of more than 10.

Casting: Open. Any age, any gender. But must be personable, able to recite poetry and learn a script and chiefly be a good, friendly host.

Written and directed by Nick Hennegan.  Associate director Katie Merritt.

Applications:  CV, and letter of experience and why you'd fit,  to casting@mavericktheatre.co.uk
