To quote Ayckbourn himself, “I think if I’ve contributed anything to the sum of modern playwriting it has been to encourage comedy and drama to exist together as in days of old”.
GamePlan certainly does this. Set in a luxury apartment overlooking the Thames the plot concerns Sorrel Saxon’s endeavours to boost the family income after the departure of her father leaving the family in substantial debt.
Her unconventional approach to making money is aided and abetted to hysterical effect by her best friend and “maid” Kelly Butcher. Fun for all.
