“It came about as all the best ideas do when we were taking the piss out of one of our friends. She is obsessed with Dwayne Johnson, and had alarm clocks and cardboard cut-outs of him,” Shaw said. “We were making comments about it, and someone mentioned that this could be a good idea for a play, and it developed from there. It was a group piss-take which turned into a 60-minute play with ten songs and a full cast.”
Unfortunately The Rock himself won’t be staring in the musical but he will be represented as a puppet
“The puppeteer for The Rock is quite a big lad, but he’s not quite The Rock, who has a very distinctive look. The eyebrow alone is one hell of an acting job,” Shaw said. “In the world that we’ve created, it’s not the real Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, it’s the teenage fantasy of him. In the script we call him ‘The Fairy RockMother.’ He appears when she needs him. He’s a really tough guy in the play who thinks he can take on everybody, but he’s still really small! Because it’s a musical and it’s fun, it works really well.”
