Raptured by Marques Lopes

Script Sessions


March 27, 2023


11.30am - 1.00pm


Theatre Royal Haymarket

We are looking for Actors for our upcoming Script Session!

On 27 March, we will be reading Raptured by Sebastiao Marques Lopes. This session will be taking place in person at Theatre Royal Haymarket, and we are looking for actors for the below roles.


Please note all roles will be read by Masterclass members aged 18-30

  • Mae – late 60s, nervous energy but more capable than she seems
  • Jonathan - early 20’s, chaotic and naïve
  • Eric – early 30’s, businessman ‘suit’

About the Play

Mae and her chaotic son Jonathan are awaiting the arrival of his brother Eric, who is part of a team selecting the people who will populate the British colony on Mars. They’re trying to get themselves on the shuttles to Mars in whatever way they can...

Actor (or creative) and want to participate?

Please make sure you are signed up as Masterclass member. Email with the title "SS 27 March - (your name)", with your CV/spotlight link, and whether you are happy to read in for a character.

More about Script Sessions

Taking place on alternate Thursdays (either via zoom or in person), these sessions give playwrights valuable early feedback, while young actors get to practise their table read skills, network other creatives, and feedback on new work. Directors and other theatre creatives also welcome!

Written a play and want to participate?

We are looking for scripts that are ideally an hour or less running time (ie between 30-90 pages). Please make sure you are signed up as Masterclass member. Email with the title "SS - (your play title)". We will read your play, and if suitable, arrange a Script Session. If not suitable for any reason, we may offer personal feedback.
