Book Damsels in Distress Tickets at the Duchess Theatre, London

About Damsels in Distress

Three new comedies on marriage, lust, life, mothers, fathers and trouble from acclaimed playwright Alan Ayckbourn, whose double-bill House/Garden played at the National Theatre in 2000.

Performed by the same company of actors and on the same set - a luxury apartment in London’s Docklands - the trilogy – Game Plan, Flat Spin and Roleplay - are in fact separate plays which share a running theme: each features a ‘damsel in distress’ (hence the collective title).

Game Plan (Mon 7.30, Sat Morning 11.30, Thu Matinee 2.30) - Lynette Saxon's business collapses and her husband disappears. She finds herself a single parent with a beak future. But her teenage daughter, Sorrel, has a daring last ditch scheme to save them both. Will her desperate game plan plunge them into deeper trouble.

Flat Spin (Tue & Thu 7.30, Sat Matinee 3.30) - A night of romance in a luxurious riverside apartment with a good-looking stranger. How can it possibly go wrong for Rosie? But the flat's not hers, she's calling herself Joanna, and haven knows what the stranger is after.

Roleplay (Wed, Fri & Sat 7.30 )- An introductory supper for Julie-Anne Jobson's future parents-in-law. An important occasion planned down to the last detail. But no-one has allowed for the arrival of the desperate Paige Petite who literally drops in from the upstairs flat-hotly pursued by the menacing Micky Rale.
