FOR their next production, Ruislip Dramatic Society invite you to a dinner party from hell hosted by Alan Ayckbourn.

The group will be performing RolePlay, a delicious romp filled with relatives, relationships and riotous mayhem.

Julie-Ann and Justin are about to announce their engagement during a special Meet the Parents dinner party.

Then a gangster’s moll and former lap-dancer, Paige Petite, and her highly-strung gun-toting minder quite literally drop in from upstairs!

Add to this the arrival of Justin’s upper-crust alcoholic mother from Surrey, and Julie-Ann’s prim and highly-prejudiced parents from Yorkshire and you have all the ingredients for an Ayckbourn comedy.

This is Ayckbourn’s 80th birthday year and the 60th anniversary of his playwriting debut.

He has now become the world’s most performed playwright after Shakespeare and the first living playwright to be knighted since Noel Coward.

ROLEPLAY by Alan Ayckbourn, Compass Theatre, Glebe Avenue, Ickenham, November 13-16.

Tickets: £12 or £11 concessions (available on Wed/Thu only).
