Two young women are applying make-up before their theatre audition by a new director. The two girls arrive at the audition room and sit and wait in reception for their turn. Samantha takes her turn, but the director seems unimpressed. Clare goes in, and performs the piece but the girls leave disappointed. A sequence of shots follow to show a recap of the previous auditionees and the casting director and director not being happy with the quality of performances. The receptionist wearing a blonde wig takes her turn to audition and gets the part. The end.
