THE DOVER ROAD

Setting
Premiered in 1922, The Dover Road is set in the home of eccentric Mr. Latimer, who waylays couples who are running away together (the Dover Road of the title leads to Paris and divorce) and gives them a taste of what their lives together might be like. The play is available here:

Available Roles*:
2 men, middle aged or older

2 men, approximately 25 to 35

2 women, approximately 25 to 35

4 performers, any age (2 men, 2 women) to play roles that are basically nonspeaking but will have lots of fun stage business.  Jugglers, acrobats, etc., welcome.

*In our classical theatre productions, we recognize that traditionally characters have been portrayed within a binary gender framework. We are actively challenging this by inviting actors of all gender identities, including gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary individuals, to audition for any role they resonate with. We are also committed to racial and ethnic inclusivity. While some roles may have specific requirements based on the character’s background, we encourage actors of all races and ethnicities to apply. We are dedicated to creating a welcoming and accommodating environment. If you have any specific needs, questions, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Your comfort and representation matter to us.

In order to promote a respectful and productive work environment, harassment of any kind is not acceptable at The Upstart Crow (TUC). TUC also prohibits harassment and discrimination based upon an individual’s age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

Harassment occurs when unwelcome verbal or physical conduct, because of its severity and/or persistence, interferes significantly with an individual’s work or safety, or adversely affects performance conditions.  Harassment also occurs when a person uses a position of authority to engage in unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
