Alumnus to put crime film before the jury at debut premiere

Alumnus Luke Kaile is preparing for his debut film to premiere at London’s infamous Leicester Square next month.

Luke is the writer behind ‘Criminal Audition’, directed by Samuel Gridley. The British crime film, in which Luke also features, premieres on Tuesday 2 April at the Prince Charles Cinema.

The plot follows an ex-lawyer and his team who run an underworld service, seeking the most desperate and greedy to become fake criminals, taking the fall for the crimes of the rich and powerful in a process known as criminal audition.

In an undisclosed location, over one night they will put three individuals to the test to find the perfect candidate, but their world is turned upside down when they face lies, deceit, murder and a very dangerous new client as they audition for their biggest job yet.

Luke graduated with a BA in Drama in 2008, going on to earn an MA in Creative Writing in 2009. He originally wrote ‘A Criminal Audition’ as his first feature-length play, and regularly acts alongside his writing.  

You can find out more about the film online.

Congratulations to Luke on his latest achievement.
