I was crying with laughter even before the show started at 2.30 p.m. My friend and I found it extremely funny from start to finish - so polished, and well executed - brilliant all through and would highly recommend it to all ages. Well done to you all...whatever your names are!

Went with eight friends and family on Saturday 25th July 2015. Every single one of us without exception thought that this play was superb. We could not stop laughing, even during the interval! If you get a chance this is a must see show. 5 stars is not enough

A true British farce which is acted with perfect split second timing. I'm sure each performance is slightly different as the cast use their ingenuity and wit. Top hint: get into your seat as soon as you can or you might miss some of the pre start antics in stage which are alluded to later...

I'm not sure what the world record for laughing in a two hour period is, but I'm pretty sure I broke it watching this play! Loved it!

Saw this show on a wet Wednesday evening. I laughed till I cried, Yes, some scenes are so predictable, ( you just know that upstairs study is going to collapse) but others so amazing you cannot believe what is happening ( 2 actors playing the same part simultaneously). I cannot recommend this play enough - I just hope it comes to Australia, so I can see it again & again. To those 2 reviews who gave just 1 star, then you have no sense of humour and the ridiculous.

Absolutely hilarious we did not stop laughing from beginning to end. Having suffered a lengthy problem with my back it was just the tonic we needed. The timing was superb and although everything goes wrong it is comic timing at its best.

The whole audience thoroughly enjoyed the evening. It is difficult to explain as on their own the gags and accidents may not seem funny but as a whole it is exceptional

Well done to everyone involved

I saw this play in Cardiff when it was on tour. It is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Have recently seen their new play 'Peter Pan goes wrong.' Just as funny.
