Hello and welcome to one of our shoutouts for projects casting around the U.K. As always there’s a mix of opportunities for all ages, abilities, and locations but do remember to check if you fit the bill before applying.

“The Importance of Walking Lobsters”

Midlands-based theatre maker Natalie Beech and performer-musician Jack Britton have joined forces to create a brand new theatre company, Perpetual Motion. They’re about to embark on their first project together and are looking for actors with experience devising new work to join them.

“The Importance of Walking Lobsters” is an unconventional comedy celebrating eccentricity and exploring its relationship to genius. Beech and Britton are searching for male and female actors, aged 18 and older, who can devise, work collaboratively, and have some experience with physical theatre. Comedy, clowning, and/or puppetry skills are also sought from candidates. You’ll need to have some previous professional credits as well as good availability to tour the show in the future.

Rehearsals will occur on various dates between April and September with the first performance at Leicester’s Attenborough Arts Centre on Sept. 30. The role pays £2,200.
