Notes

Roundelay consists of five related one-act plays.
The order of performance of the five plays is intended to be entirely random with the night's playing order decided by the drawing of coloured ping pong balls by the audience prior to the evening's performance.
There are 120 possible permutations of the play, although unlike - for example - Alan Ayckbourn's Intimate Exchanges, every audience sees every single play which forms Roundelay each night, it is merely the sequence of the plays which is altered, affecting the audiences perception of each play.
