Looking for an actor with a physical disability to play the character of Jimmy (playing age 14-21)in the first full staging of 'Chasing Rainbows' a play written by myself. The play is a coming of age drama set in Newport, South Wales. The play follows Dervla 14, who lives with her mum who suffers from post-natal depression, and her new baby brother. Dervla is fed up of her life is general, and wants to seek a better life for herself. One day she meets Jimmy, a nerdy, middle-class boy who has cerebral palsy in the detention room at school. They don't like each other at first, but over time, they become firm friends. After things get worse with her mum, Dervla decides that she must find her estranged dad in order to improve her life and tries to rope Jimmy into her plan to go to Bristol and find him. Will he go with her or risk losing his new-found friend?

Rehearsals will take place at the Neath Little Theatre in Neath in July and August, with performances at the end of August (dates TBC). Unfortunately as mentioned previously, this is an unpaid opportunity. The director for this project is also TBC. Unfortunately we cannot provide expenses for transport/food.

Jimmy is a 14 year old boy from Newport, South Wales. He has cerebral palsy. Ideally I'd like to cast a disabled actor in this role if possible. I feel that casting disabled actors in disabled roles is far more authentic than casting non-disabled actors. Looking for an enthusiastic emerging actor with some experience to help bring this character to life.

Male, aged 18 to 23

  • Acting agent: I don't have an agent
