The Role ModelDuration: 90 mins | Cast: 4 male, 2 women

Scott is a retired Olympic Swimming champion who has just ruined his motivational speaking career by sleeping with his best mate’s wife. The media and public have turned against him, and, worst of all, his motivational speaking dates have all been cancelled. How will Scott make a living now?

Wanda, his manager, comes up with an idea to change his image. She gets him involved with Beating the Blues – an organisation that helps young people overcome depression through an exercise program. The idea is that Scott will help with the exercise and, once the kids start to cheer up, Wanda will get A Current Affair to do a story on him, so everyone will love him again. Unfortunately, the young man Scott is assigned to help just won’t cheer up!

The Role Model was first produced by The Riverina Theatre Company, Wagga, Australia, in March 2008. It was subsequently produced by boobook theatre in Melbourne, the Rude Mechanicals in Canberra, and Twleve25 Youth Theatre in Adelaide in March 2011.
