Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

Karl, a man that has lost touch with almost everybody, has passed away. Six old friends are surprised to find themselves invited to his wake… by letters he sent out just days before he died. Together for the first time in years, they all find one last letter for each of them waiting in the hands of his wife… with some last requests.

“Wake” takes place over one day, and is about how the past can be temporarily forgotten, but never be erased.

Payment details: £40 each day. Four days. All expenses covered.
