The cast are all excellent. Sheila Hancock, Lee Evans and

Karl Johnson. I do hope Keeley Hawes gets recognition for her role. She is totally ruthless - Lady Macbeth of Essex! (with a tan). If you are offended by bad language - don't go. If you want to see something different - and see what happens when four talented actors are put together - go along to this beautiful theatre.

You are all so prudish! Hilarious fun. Blue as hell but worth every penny. Keeley Hawes a total genius, as is Sheila Hancock. GO!

I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I admit the swearing does get a bit tedious after a while, and the play could probably reduce this considerably without diminishing the plot in any way. Overall however, I thought the three main actors were excellent and the script very funny. I would certainly recommend it to my friends and family.

We went to see this play and have had tickets booked for months as the pre-amble in the run up to its release looked good and with Lee Evans in it I thought it would be funny and good.

I was very wrong Lee should stick to what he is good at as taking roles like this in a very weakly written play is not worthy of his talents.

The level of gratuitous swearing is disgusting and I have no idea why they thought it was required.

The plot was more than weak and I will not be running back to see another play its a shame but this experience has really been bad.

I am sure there is a lot better on offer.

as i expected, the amatuer critcs are out in force pretending their oh so discerning palate has been damaged by this production, if you didnt like the swearing you should have took notice of the warning notices in the lobby and asked for your money back. get a life people,great entertainment by a great cast not taking themselves too seriously,a lesson for us all

Awful. It couldnt be any worse. Even if you have tickets, you should not go. It's the worst thing ever. Ever.

Don't like bad language, never use it but for some strange reason it works in this play. My sister and I absolutely loved it. Allthe cast were very strong and we loved Sheila Hancock . Would easily sit through this again.
