The play 'Clandestine' takes place in one/two rooms to accommodate both the eulogy being read at the late Adam’s funeral – and the post-funeral gathering of the attendees of which there are very few.

During the proceedings and between Emily and Robert it is apparent that both have a deep affection for one another and this is consummated during the post-funeral proceedings.

Emily has been drinking quite a bit and this becomes clear in her later behaviour when panic sets in regarding a missing item.



Emily is a professional woman. She is apparently mourning the passing of her late husband Adam. However there is obviously a connection between her and Robert, and as such, there is a romantic section involving a kissing sequence with 'Robert' with dress/skirt/top removed, however no nudity is required.

Female, aged 25 to 40

Robert (now cast)

Robert isn't a member of the family of the late Adam, nor a known friend, colleague or acquaintance. However he has turned up for Adam’s funeral. The actor playing Robert will be involved in a romantic sequence with 'Emily'. This will require passionate kissing and removal of trousers/shirt - however no nudity is required.

Male, aged 25 to 40
