Mordred is a feature film and theatre production, being directed by Laura Jay, one of our founders. A gritty, dark tale, Mordred is an Arthurian-era drama, heavily influenced by the earliest legends of Mordred, who is traditionally seen as King Arthur's arch-nemesis, and illegitimate son. In the earlier legends, Mordred is much more of an ambiguous character, and not pure evil, as in modern re-tellings, this film and theatre show tells of the legends, from Mordred's point of view. This drama is set in the 530s, against the backdrop of the Saxon invasions, heavily influenced by Celtic legends and Druidic traditions, and the earliest tales of Arthur, and his followers. The film will be made across South West England, with as much use as possible of actual Arthurian locations, and ancient sites, in Devon and Cornwall. The theatre shows will be performed in South Devon (as a certainty) and we will also be looking to perform in Cornwall, as well. Open auditions will be held Sunday Feb 28, 2016, 4.30pm , Chestnut Community Centre, 1 - 3 Poplar Close, Brixham, TQ5 0SA Unfortunately we will not be able to accept video submissions. Attendance at auditions must be in person. Please visit our auditions page for an overview of what to expect at our castings. http://www.southdevonplayers.com/auditions.html The project runs as a profit share production, as per the terms set out on our website. All named cast will be fully credited on IMDB Anyone under the age of 16, must be accompanied at all castings, rehearsals and filming/ performances, by a parent or legal guardian. Most of the ladies will be involved in fight/ battle scenes, fighting alongside the men, especially in the Saxon raids, and at Camlann, and mandatory combat training will take place in Brixham at the community centre for all relevant successful cast. If you have a physical reason that this would not be possible, please email us to discuss first.
