No advance preparation is required. Auditions for the devised piece will take the form of improvisations and workshopping. This will also be an introduction to some of the processes we will be following in the creation of this show. ‘Keeping in Touch with Temptation’ is a show that needs actors who are keen to explore new techniques and develop fully rounded characters over the rehearsal period.

4. Synopsis and Cast Breakdown
There is none.
‘Keeping in Touch with Temptation’ is such a new play that at the moment, it exists as a name and an image.
It needs to be created by you, our actors.
This is a fantastic opportunity to continue the six year streak of KDC’s Devised Plays, and the first one to be given the run of a whole week alongside our other shows. The Devised Process has gone from strength to strength, from the purgatorial ‘Ups and Downs’ which even made an extra trip to Edinburgh, to ‘The Last Order’, and 2013’s fantastically haunting ‘Visited’.
From only an image and a title, the director and the cast will create a unique and original production, an entire play from devising techniques and improvisation, that requires keen imaginations, actors who can create and embody a character, and a cast that create something new and fantastic.
The KDC Theatre Devised Play remains one of the most challenging, and at the same time one of the most satisfying actor-as-creator experiences in the London Amateur Dramatics scene.
