The play was developed in the UK and has British colloquialisms, which will be replaced with Canadian ones. The actor who is cast must be charming, engaging, warm. The actor must be equally adept at comedy and drama. They must have the ability to draw an audience in with their honesty and their storytelling, to make an audience feel at home. Experience and expertise in improvisation with others would be a vital advantage. Playing an instrument is an advantage and highly recommended to bring to your audition.

A Taste of this Play: You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. A play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
