AUDIENCES can expect to get up close and personal to the actors in dynamic play Roundelay, as four members of the crowd will be called up to participate.
The nationally acclaimed Stephen Joseph Theatre Company is coming to Bath to bring playwright Alan Ayckbourn’s latest offering to life.
Roundelay is Ayckbourn’s 78th play and promises to be as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.
The play consists of five scenes – the agent, the judge, the novelist, the politician and the star – which could be played out in any order. Four audience members will be selected at random to take part and with 120 possible script combinations no-one, including the actors, will know how the play will unfold until 25 minutes before it begins.
Roundelay will be running at the Theatre Royal from Monday to February 7, with performances from Monday to Wednesday at 7.30pm, from Thursday to Saturday at 8pm and matinee shows on Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm
Tickets, priced £18.50-34.50, are available from the box office 01225 448844 or from www.theatreroyal.org.uk
