Ricky Oakley - Roller Diner

Mon, 5 Jun 2017

RICKY OAKLEY is now appearing as main role PJ in new musical ROLLER DINER at Soho Theatre until June 24th 2017

What's On Stage Review: "As the young mismatched couple, Oakley and Shorthouse are as lovable as they are talented....Oakley imbues PJ with a sweetness that proves genuinely affecting. Plus he has a terrific rock tenor (when they start looking for a London lead for Dear Evan Hansen, they should definitely look in Oakley's direction)."

A theatrical jukebox with songs, sexual tension and failed dreams… all served with extra ketchup

Welcome to Eddie Costello’s Roller Diner – a faded Brummie beacon of a deep fried American dream. The staff can’t skate and there’s a whiff of burnt sausages and disappointment.

So when new waitress Marika arrives from somewhere foreign looking for a slice of a better life, hearts are set alight in a fiery recipe of love, jealousy and murder.

Directed by Soho Theatre Artistic Director Steve Marmion, Roller Diner is the professional debut of Birmingham writer Stephen Jackson and the winner of Soho Theatre’s prestigious Verity Bargate Award for new writing.

A savage sweet musical comedy, it opens up the heart of middle England and the universal search for a place to call home.
