CASTING CALL

Please register below to be considered for LIL - The Play.

The LIL DRAMA COMPANY is a Hull based theatre company interested in establishing its place in the UK theatre space to promote and produce strong stories by Northern Writers, especially women. In honour of its namesake LILLIAN BILOCCA, it strives to be bold, outspoken and not afraid to stand up for what it believes people want and need to see.

It may well be cold in November but this traditional play, staged in a wonderful sixties style theatre will, we hope, be many people’s cup of tea. Focusing mainly on the LIL the woman, not just the tragic events that sparked her into action.
