An example of best practice in hiring actors for the fringe


He raises funds, then hires the actors he wants. Is this a seasoned professional producer? No it’s a theatre journalist!

From Mark Shenton’s Blog in The Stage:

“Now we could go ahead with casting it, secure in the knowledge that we actually had money to pay actors. We drew up “wish lists” of actors we might be interested in – and early on, Charlotte mentioned an actor she’s always loved, Jack Klaff. Could we get him, perhaps? I’d actually seen him last year in Stockwell, a wonderful documentary play chronicling the inquest into the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes at the station of the same name, at Clapham’s Landor Theatre, as I wrote here at the time. So I knew he might be up for fringe work.”
