East Lane is an amateur club. No payments are made for performing.
If this is your first time at East Lane, please also bring with you details of your past experience, a photo with your Full name, address, phone number and email so we can contact you later.
Auditions are as friendly and informal as possible, you will be asked to read from the provided
audition pieces, either singly or in groups, as well as moving around our stage.
There is no need to learn the pieces provided, and we do not ask for any learnt pieces to be performed.
We do ask that if cast you can make all the rehearsal & performance dates, although it is sometimes possible to accommodate pre arranged holidays. Please bring with you dates you cannot make.

Roger has enough trouble assembling his cricket team to play against the British Railways Maintenance Division Reading East, but these complications pall before those occurring among their various wives and girlfriends. As a final catastrophe, rain starts to fall.
The play, from the author of Stepping Out, was first seen at the Queen's Theatre, London, starring Julia McKenzie and Maureen Lipman.
