DC Jackson’s fast-paced, comedy, indeed farce, has many twists and turns with many hilarious moments as the action unfolds. The play is set in Glasgow in Andrew and Julie’s bedroom. They see themselves as a sexually liberated couple and they are up for a night of sexual experimentation. They have hired Mark, a black male escort, now living in Edinburgh but originally from London. There is something of a culture clash between Mark, the smooth city guy, and Andrew and Julie who aren’t really city types, having moved from Dingwall, a small town in NE Scotland.
They prepare for action. Fade out to a night of imagined sexual antics. When they wake up next morning, the three characters have miraculously switched bodies to their utter dismay and panic. Not only minds in different bodies but also gender and skin colour changes. All manner of humorous and dramatic situations develop, both in out of the bedroom.
The cast give strong performances for the dual roles they play and in bringing out the humour in the script. Do they discover how to return to their original forms? Does Andrew and Julie’s relationship survive? No answers from me!
