Alan Ayckbourn’s Comic Potential  was written and first performed in 1998 when it swept the board in Best Actress awards for Janie Dee as Jacie. It is set in the foreseeable future in a world in which television actors have been replaced by androids (called “actoids”). As well as being a satire on the television industry, it also creates nostalgia for the golden age of film comedy of Buster Keaton and Oliver Hardy and, at heart, is also a love story, as Adam falls  in love with young nurse actoid JCF31-333, or Jacie Triplethree as she prefers to be known!
