Having spent over 50 years in amatuer/armature/amater theatre. And having experienced many,many 'cock-ups' this play was like bathing in champagne .... the timing of gags was perfect! I have never laughed so times in tears of joy.

What a team of gifted performers and production team. Not least of whom was the dog..what a trooper. Best comedy ever.

Went to see this last night with my wife and children and laughed all the way through its great slap stick. To the one star reveiws you have a sense of humour of a Lemming !

Came to see this play with a friend in May and loved it so much that I am back tonight with my 12 year old daughter - 11th Aug 2015 to see if she gets what I find so funny

As an amateur actress myself I understood completely which made it all the more hysterical

I was crying with laughter even before the show started at 2.30 p.m. My friend and I found it extremely funny from start to finish - so polished, and well executed - brilliant all through and would highly recommend it to all ages. Well done to you all...whatever your names are!

Went with eight friends and family on Saturday 25th July 2015. Every single one of us without exception thought that this play was superb. We could not stop laughing, even during the interval! If you get a chance this is a must see show. 5 stars is not enough
