... Bounces along apace, with a very good & strong supporting cast and a lovely, rotating house set; Nigel L is super (as ever) but the seedy store/private detective is the true star turn: very funny and also oddly menacing too. A great bit of semi-serious farce, well performed by a quality cast. Only bit I found a bit strange/uneasy was the ending, where 'Sammy' (the troubled, drugged-up teen daughter) seemed to drift away alone, for unclear reasons. Go and see it!
Excellent script, superb actors, fast-paced mostly comedy action, farce with a marvellous set (rotating, full-size house!) ... One of the best things I've seen at the NT for a long time, especially the lady who 'romances' her way through all 5 of the Italian brothers, one by one (not simultaneously-:)
Pathetic, laboured, boring, clichéd, entirely predicable -you wouldn't give it 5 mins if it was on tv.
A total waste of £30 for two tickets
Why is The National Theatre wasting public money on this rubbish?
