2018 CCLA / GCTC Lawyer Play: Book Your Audition!

December 18, 2017  


Rule of Three

by Agatha Christie
Directed by Eric Coates & Pamela Feghali
June 6, 7, 8 & 9

A collection of three one-act murder mysteries by the best-selling author of all time, Agatha Christie. Includes the light-hearted comedy Afternoon at the Seaside, in which a detective attempts to find a priceless emerald necklace and the culprit who stole it; The Rats, a dark and chilling tale in which a pair of adulterous lovers find themselves lured to a flat, trapped like rats and framed for murder; and finally, The Patient, a tense thriller in which a woman has been hospitalized after seemingly falling from her balcony.

  • The GCTC/CCLA Lawyer Play is a fundraising project that supports the operations of Great Canadian Theatre Company and benefits a charity partner, which this year is Tungasuvvingat Inuit, an Inuit-specific service provider that provides social support, cultural activities, counselling, and crisis intervention as a one-stop resource centre to meet the rapidly growing, complex and evolving needs of Inuit in Ontario.

  • Anyone in the legal profession, including articling students, paralegals, and judges are eligible to audition for the Lawyer Play. No acting experience required, just an open mind and a passion for theatre!

  • Rehearsals begin in the spring and will run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Sunday afternoons. Actors must be available when called throughout the rehearsal period.


  • You must be available for ALL nights of the play and a very busy rehearsal period, including most evenings during the two weeks leading up to the performances. You must be available for Tech Rehearsal the weekend before the performance dates.

  • Rehearsals begin in early March and continue until the performances, June 6, 7, 8 & 9.

  • ALL cast members are required to sell a minimum number of tickets (40) and seek sponsors for the Lawyer Play.
