A Dark Comedy written by Erica Murray

Directed by Terry Darby

The Cat’s Mother is a funny, moving play centring around two Irish sisters; Sinead and Ciara, who over the course of a weekend attempt to grapple with a morally-challenging decision surrounding their mother, whose early-onset dementia is proving too difficult to handle.

Auditions will be held at The New Plymouth Little Theatre, New Plymouth for this delightful play.


Sinead – sister

Ciara – sister

Marge. A Barista in a local café.

Gemma. A personal trainer.

Dr Hill. A medical practitioner.

Tina. An alcoholic zookeeper.

Jeannie. A lawyer.

Rosie. A spiritual healer.

Smaller roles can be played by one person but I wish to use as many different people as possible. The roles would suit a range of ages, seasoned actresses or anyone wishing to tread the boards for the first time.

The play is scheduled to run from mid July and it is envisaged that rehearsals will commence as soon as the cast have been chosen.

Auditions to be held at New Plymouth Little Theatre at 11am on the 1st May 2022.
