Alan Ayckbourn's "Role Play" Review Now Online!

Last week I had the pleasure to go and see a really excellent production of Newport Playgoers Society production of Role Play at The Dolman Theatre, Newport.

Judith Lindwall’s directional debut for Newport Playgoers Society is the third part of Alan Ayckbourn’s Damsels in Distress trilogy: Role Play.

Role Play tells the story of Julie-Ann and Justin, a mismatched couple who reside in a London Docklands apartment. The drama unfolds as they prepare a dinner party to announce their engagement to their respective parents.

However, events take an unexpected twist when an ex lap dancer called Paige Petite spectacularly enters the apartment on the run from an abusive boyfriend and gun toting bodyguard.

You can read my review of Role Play which featured wonderful performances from Emma Hazelhurst, Cassie Bowkett, Jamie Jarvis and Rose Bissex at

A big thank you to Phil Mansell who provided me with some excellent rehearsal shots from the production. Check out further news and pictures from Newport Playgoers Society at their website.
