Synopsis:

Set in the oldest pub in Britain, No Cockfighting focuses on the misadventures of five egocentric misfits, who answer to the call of a short-fused landlord named Christo, and trip up over the adult world of business, politics and relationships.

Christo, stuck in a mid-life crisis with no way out, tries to ‘raise the tone’ of his newly acquired pub, becoming increasingly frustrated at the numerous complications and mistakes; both his own and others, which prevents him from fulfilling his dream of becoming a celebrity pub landlord.

Unfortunately with the backdrop of Brexit, and the relentless axing of the classic British pub, their personal sensibilities and capricious flaws often lead them into trouble, creating increasingly uncomfortable situations that get worse, and usually don’t get any better.

Ye Olde Fighting Cocks is the last bastion of British drinking culture in a quickly changing world. Will our band of misfits adapt to these changes, or resist them wholly until the end of days?

More info:

We will be filming at the Ye Old Fighting Cocks pub in St Albans so would prefer someone who lives as local as possible however this is not essential.

Sheehan (Late 20s) quick-witted bartender

Comically arrogant, Sheehan, is extremely status obsessed and styles himself as quite high on the social - and professional - hierarchy. This skewed sensibility often blinds him to the real-world implications of his actions and how people interpret him. His faux-charisma is his ultimate flaw, causing him to often misjudge others and land him in awkward situations. His need for acceptance causes him to insult and demean his friends and coworkers.

Male, aged 18 to 40

Applications closed 15 December 2019.

Beverly (Late 20’s) Ethnically ambiguous character

Optimistic and reserved having just graduated university with a pointless degree, identifies herself as ‘better’ than everyone else. Her belief that this is just a temporary gig for her is soon questioned, as she has no real transferable skills other than working in a bar. Not much is known about her. She’s shy, but Ye Olde drags her out of her shell. She learns quickly but doesn’t really care about the pubs future, brexit or anything worthy of an educated individual.

Female, aged 18 to 40
