  • Play
  • If I Were You is a comedy play by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn.

    "Meet Mal and Jill Rodale. Their marriage is on the rocks. Mal is an aggressive store manager with little empathy for his staff or customers, and is having an affair - conveniently during his lunch breaks. Jill is a housewife, with regrets of not fulfilling her dreams - and knows about Mal's infidelity.

    On top of this their son Sam wants to appear in a school production of Shakespeare, much to the opposition of Mal, who questions Sam's sexuality. However, he loves his conventional daughter Chrissie and prized son-in-law Dean, who also works at Mal's store.

    But little does Mal know that Chrissie isn't happy. Something that she can only confide in with her mother Jill. But things are about to change for the Rodales. One morning, Mal and Jill wake up and make a remarkable discovery - they have somehow swapped bodies! Leaving Jill to go to work and Mal to stay at home - with hilarious consequences!"
