We went to the matinee on Sunday afternoon and what an enjoyable experience it was, this play is absolutely hilarious and so cleverly performed. The theatre is really compact so everyone gets a really good view. I would thoroughly recommend it for a great feel good experience. We will definitely look out for other productions from this theatre company and will probably go again to this production with our friends.

My husband and myself laughed so hard all the way through this. If you like silly but not childish humour you will love this Play. There was not one bad scene or joke, would love to watch it again.

Hilarious! Brilliant! You can't tell people the funny bits cos it is funny before the play starts and you just don't stop laughing til the final curtain!

All the reviews are spot on! This really is one of the funniest plays I've seen in a long time and we laughed our way through the whole thing. It is worth getting there early just to enjoy the pre-show antics which really add to the enjoyment of the play. Well done to the cast.

I saw this play in Canterbury earlier this year, and loved it. So much so that I'm taking 20 others to see it as my birthday treat. Can't wait. Chuckled. Giggled and laughed all the way through. Go and see it.

What a great show. If you want to laugh go and watch this play. Great timing and so much going on. There were four of us and all agreed how good it was. You will laugh throughout the whole show.

Funniest play I have seen for many years, laughed all the way through it, even before the play started one of the actresses came into our box with the pretext of looking for her lost dog, loved every minute of it

Great fun and a very enjoyable evening. Nice to have an evening where you can watch and relax without having to think about it. You've heard most of the jokes before and can see whats likely to come next before it happens, but that doesnt matter as you will still laugh out loud throughout the show!

I had to watch this with a tissue in hand as the tears of laughter flowed uncontrollably. The cast are superb and the whole thing falls apart (literally) in the funniest way imaginable.

A must see....

If you want to laugh until you cry, go and see this play. The whole cast is wonderful, always remembering that they are supposed to be putting on a straight play, so never hamming it up. The audience loved it and we all had one of the best times in the theatre that I can remember.
