In the near future, a comedian is put on trial for making offensive jokes about the royal family. Flung into a cold, empty box of a room, he is faced with three judges. With an appearance closer to calculating businessmen and women than impartial judges, they hardly look ready to give a fair trial.

We are looking for actors and actresses to portray these judges. We're looking for those who want to portray subtle, menacing villains. The film is a black comedy – essentially Black Mirror on a student budget – exploring a dystopian version of the future wherein the government has twisted well-meaning political correctness laws and use them to control the population, ridding the world of free speech and rebellious thought.

These parts are unpaid, however, catering and travel costs will be covered for those living in the London area.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Shooting will be over a single day on Saturday, 8th of December, at Ravensbourne University, London.

The Ringleader

Sat in the centre of the three judges, the "Ringleader" is the coldest and most ruthless. Abusing his power, his mission is to silence political enemies and continue the status quo, twisting well-meaning laws into tools of his control.

Males, aged 40 to 80 from London, UK

The Traitor

The "Traitor" sits to the side of the judges. A former writer himself, he feels he can relate to the comedian and convince him to "better" himself and use his talents for establishment interests. It is implied he was once a rebellious artist but whose will was squashed by the state.

Males, aged 40 to 80 from London, UK

The Woman

The "Woman" is a parody of corporate businesswomen. As if by obligation, she is brought on to the trial provide a more "feminine" perspective, which amounts to her sharing the exact same viewpoints as the other judges, but with an occasional, insincere outburst of emotion.

Females, aged 40 to 80 from London, UK
