Have your say

OPEN auditions are being held for specially commissioned play to mark the 70th anniversary of D Day.

Tomorrow Will Be Too Late, written by Lucy Flannery and Julian Sluggett, is the story of three families and starts on New Year’s Eve 1943. It tells the story of the build-up towards one of the most momentous events of the 20th century.

It will be staged in North Street car park, Emsworth, over two weekends.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded WemsFest arts collective £100,000 to stage a series of events for D Day commemorations.

Mr Sluggett said: ‘We are looking to cast the three families, soldiers, civilians, Home Guard, MPs and children in speaking and-non speaking roles. A cast of 30 or more.’

Auditions take place on Sunday from 2pm to 4pm and Wednesday 7pm to 9.30pm at the Westbourne Club, River Street, Westbourne.
