The production is looking for 2 MEN and 2 WOMEN to complete the cast, ages 20 to 70.  Note that some parts require two accents – Standard British English and regional/international.

In this comedy-thriller, a group of six strangers – and a butler – have gathered for a black-tie dinner in the English country mansion of a wealthy lawyer during a thunderstorm. One of the guests, identified only as an “oily Levantine,” tells his fellow dinner guests that he has information with which to blackmail each and every one of them. This, of course, makes him ripe for murder…
