GamePlan, along with FlatSpin, was originally intended to be part of a pair of plays, both set in the London Docklands, and both using the same cast of seven. Playwright Alan Ayckbourn has a flat in the Docklands, where he observed that neighbours do not know each other well and strange things can happen under their noses. Such was the success of these plays and the cohesiveness of the cast that Ayckbourn quickly wrote a third, RolePlay to join them as a trilogy, Damsels In Distress. Like the other two plays, this drew some inspiration from the London Docklands.
GamePlan was also a landmark in the progression of Ayckbourn’s plays into darker and more contemporary material. Although contemporary subjects had been covered before, such as domestic violence in Things We Do For Love, the subject of teenage prostitution was a new departure. It was still tame compared to the material now covered by other playwrights, but still arguably a gamble.

Who Are St Jude’s Players?
St Jude’s Players Inc is a community theatre group consisting of volunteers operating out of a church hall in Brighton, a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. Although the Players are loosely affiliated with, and the group was formed by, members of St Jude’s, today membership is open to everyone who has an interest in quality community theatre.
The Players usually put on three full-length productions a year, and they can include comedies, dramas and musicals. Although the hall is not large (it seats about 180 people), on occasions we can raise the roof! Naturally, occasions for eating and drinking figure prominently throughout the year.
