Living in Australia we have just seen a short version on the Royal Command Performance we have not laughed out loud so much for a long time.

Just hope it comes to Perth

I saw this two weeks ago.What an excellent show,it had me laughing from beginning to end.

So much so as soon as I got home I booked a ticket to see the company's next show at The Apollo Theatre. So I'm all set to see Peter Pan goes Wrong on the 13th December.

Great. The only really funny comedy in London this year, or any other that I can think of this century. The idea of an inept bunch of theatricals performing a dreadfully accident prone play is brilliant but was, I suppose, just waiting to be done.

My friend and I went to see this play yesterday (21st November).

I booked this partly on the strength of reviews I had read and thought it sounded like my kind of play. I wasn't wrong - my friend and I were laughing from virtually the start to the finish.

The cast did so badly very well!!! Split second timing and one disaster after another - the rehearsal and practice that goes into this play must be phenomenol. Not one cue was mssed, all went disasterously but was so perfect. Great props - non-stop laughter.

We were both really impressed and it really was a great afternoon's entertainment.

An additional note the Duchess theatre is small but lovely - we were in the dress circle and it was a very relaxing experience. Another plus was it was easy to get our drinks in the interval and bring back to our seats to finish off for the second half of non-stop laughter.

Staff attention was also brilliant - great afternoon's entertainment.

Way past my expectation! , My self & my wife, just sat her efor 2 hours tears rolling down our cheeks, from laughter !!, how this play is performed so deadpan is a credit to the cast! You have to make sure you get there and seated before its the official 'curtain up' starts....theres even jokes & gags before the play starts! - just dont take your dog with you..

What a farce! A 'Whodunnit', an accident-prone cast, inanimate objects stealing the show and tears of laughter. Arrive early; you may see something that may relate to later occurrences!

Fabulous show. We laughed from start to finish. So well done to keep the theme going throughout.
