A pair of one-act plays set three months apart in a Bournemouth hotel in the 1950s

Open auditions for Terence Rattigan’s Separate Tables take place at the Blackmore Theatre on Wednesday, February 27 at 8pm.

The auditions are open to everyone, regardless of age or acting experience, including non-members of the Exmouth Players.

The pair of one-act plays, Table by the Window and Table Number Seven, is set at the Hotel Beauregard in Bournemouth, 10 years after the end of the Second World War.

A number of people have come to live there for various reasons, and their secrets, triumphs and disappointments provide a distraction from the daily routines of meals in the dining room and conversations in the lounge. The events in the two plays are separated by a three-month period.
