Do you want to be cast in a play? Have you ever been to auditions before? Come to the open auditions for the Finn-Brit Players' main autumn production, directed by Anna Olkinuora with assistant director Ulf Persson.

'Ingrid' is a play about Ingrid Bergman. A Swedish actress, a Hollywood darling for many years who received thousands of fan letters every week. All that came to an abrupt end when she left Hollywood to make films with the Italian film director Roberto Rossellini. They fell in love and she had to make a great personal sacrifice - she had to leave her little daughter Pia behind. The moral outcry in the USA was enormous with condemnations even in the senate, and the fan letters became hate letters.

'Ingrid' takes place towards the end of her life. We are in Ingrid’s apartment in New York and she has invited her daughter Pia to dinner. She wants to explain – before it’s too late.

1 female actor and 6–8 male actors are needed. If you are interested and would like to try out, sign up for the event and send me a note who you'd like to audition for:
