Notes

> RolePlay is part of a trilogy of plays - alongside GamePlan & FlatSpin - known as the Damsels In Distress trilogy. The plays do not share the same characters or plot but feature similar thematic elements and were written to be performed on the same set with the same company of actors. They were designed to re-introduce repertory theatre into the Stephen Joseph Theatre.
>
Damsels In Distress was not initially conceived as a trilogy but as a duology. However, whilst rehearsing FlatSpin, Alan Ayckbourn announced to his company he had an idea for a third play, RolePlay, and would they be interested? As a result, RolePlay was a very late addition to the summer schedule (confirmed just before the summer brochure was due to be printed) and had a very short initial run from 30 August to 8 September. It later returned, independent of the other two plays for a run between 6 - 17 November 2013.
