The Fish Cage is Greedy Pig Theatre Company's second production, following the story of a teen who gets a murderer trapped in his head - and we're now auditioning! 

We are looking for Bath-based actors - one male (age 22-35) and one female (age 22-35). Rehearsals will be in Bath, and will be on weekday evenings and weekends. You will be given a small thank you fee of £70 total on completion of the final performance.

THE FISH CAGE by Douglas Murdoch

Connor is a nineteen year-old introvert, obsessed with comic books and superheroes. He’s at his happiest when he’s alone with his own thoughts. Except... for the next three days, he’s not.

In a world where criminals store their consciousnesses in others to evade capture, Connor now finds himself with an eccentric, charismatic and quite possibly homicidal newcomer in his head, and a fight for control begins. The Fish Cage is a thrilling, funny and intense look into how a normal family’s loyalties shift when control starts to slip away.

Because when you share a mind with someone, nothing stays hidden for long...


We are looking to cast the following two roles for this four-person cast.


AGE: 22-35

GENDER: Female

Ryan’s girlfriend. Pragmatic, realistic, capable, but meek and introverted. She brings a dry comedic wit to the situation and, though often spoken over, is frequently the first to solve the problem.


AGE: 22-35


Connor’s brother, Ruby’s boyfriend. Masculine, easily riled up, feels it’s his responsibility to keep the situation under control, but way out of his depth. Kind and caring under the surface, but his self-assigned role of the unflappable alpha male conflicts with his role as the caring brother.
