Brilliant - The perfect antidote to the sad news stories. A lighthouse of entertainment!

Warning - do NOT attend this unless you have medical supervision accompanying you. This will be needed to sew up your sides after they've split with laughing, revive you after you've laughed yourself into a catatonic state and generally be fed you oxygen at regular intervals. I was helpless with laughter. I cannot say how clever this is, unbelievable timing (some must have been hurt in some of the stunts). Just a fantastic night out - too many examples to mention. I will definitely see this again as I am sure I missed a lot, but then I was doubled over most of the time so I couldn't see.

do yourself a BIG favour, get this booked.

Absolutely Fantastic. Second time of seeing it was even funnier than the first. Having been involved in am dram and school productions all my life, everything strikes a chord. The slapstick is amazing and the timing perfect. A truly magnificent cast that work so hard to present a couple of hours of pure hilarity without recourse to smut or innuendo. Superb!

Brilliant fast moving comedy with laughs from 15 minutes before the “start”. Twists and turns, action packed laughs with actors, lines, props and circumstances. Truly amazing production.

Very enjoyable and fun to watch. Slapstick but pulled off by some clever acting. Would even like to see it again as sure some ad libing went on so the next performance would be slightly different. A good night out.

Have not laughed so much in the space of 2 hours for a long time. Still laughing now. Seats had plenty of leg room and very comfy. Ice cream served in the auditorium like back in the day. Staff very friendly. A must see !!
