Cast Roles and Audition Pieces

This is a play centred on twins who are separated at birth exploring the degree to which success in life is determined by innate qualities or privileges and background.  It was first performed in 1981 and  written by Willy Russell who also wrote Educating Rita and Shirley Valentine among others.

Auditions will be held at PADOS Studio Theatre, St. Marys Road, Prestwich, M25 1AQ.

PADOS is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and we welcome applications from all members of the community.  We particularly encourage applications from people who are currently under-represented within our Society.
