Excellent show. Brilliantly funny! If you like slap stick comedy, silly wit and outrageous lunacy this is for you. It's hilariously funny, the comic timing is superb, I was crying with laughter. I didn't pay a lot for the tickets so I wasn't expecting much, but I wasn't disappointed. The cast worked so hard everyone gave them a standing ovation at the end. A must see!

Fantastic. Virtually laughed all the way through. Recommend it to anyone. Good piece of slapstick comedy. Loved it.

Absolutely loved it. Took husband and 15 year old, neither of whom are easily impressed, but they belly laughed the whole way through. Previously say the play that went wrong. Equally as good. Very clever writing and acting. A demo must see.

This was brilliant! Even better than their other shows. Make sure you get a good seat as there are some poor restricted view seats that some of my group were sat in that make a big difference.

I loved every minute of it! I would highly recommend it if you are wanting a fun night out.

Could have been good, but each scene was milked until it was done to death. I can't agree that it was fast paced. Maybe the second act was better - I didn't stay. Not the best farce I have seen by a long chalk.

Another fabulous show from the team who are leading the way in comedy theatre. Every scene seems to reach the crescendo of hilarity and farce and then it ups the bar even higher. This is not a 'gone wrong' play like 'The play' or 'Peter Pan' but a play with farce as its core storyline. The efficiency of the scene changes is brilliant. Look out for the view down onto the office! An amazing multi dimensional visible treat which had people asking initially " is that done by mirrors?" From start to finish the story plays out in both a visual and audio laugh out loud manner. It is fast paced and funny and unless you don't 'get' farce, a wonderful evenings entertainment.
