Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't laughed so much in ages Brilliant performances by cast and crew. Well done to all concened
Date published: 2020-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even funnier than expected. Only read a couple of reviews before booking this about a week before we went. Expected it be be entertaining but wasn't expecting to laugh quite as much as we did. Farce meets slapstick (Laurel & Hardy) and me, my wife and our 11 year old loved this show. Couldn't stop talking about it with friends for a few days after and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this. Would very happily go see again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very funny If you like slap stick humour then this is probably for you, however we wish we had seen something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute cracker of a play I went to this play with my wife and I was a bit unsure about it. We live in Southampton so going up to the city for a break and booking this was a chance we took. To make me laugh is hard, but within minutes of the play stating I had genuine tears running down my face. The cast were great and so funny it was a pure delight. They play their parts brilliantly We have already recommended the play to our friend who live in the capital. If you get a chance go see it it says what it is on the tin so to speak Well done to all you guys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Irony, slapstick and stunts combined with energy and talent This clever production, which takes a rise out of the classic whodunnit murder mystery really ticked my boxes. At first I thought it was going to be a bit childish and cringe-worthy but once I relaxed and decided to enter into the spirit I laughed more than I have in a long time. This is a really skilful production and I loved the parody. If you find things like Victoria Woods’ Acorn Antiques hilarious you’ll love this. Only one criticism - the two young women were terrific but for balance and even more humour I’d like an older woman in the mix too !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So repetitive! If you're the kind of person that can keep laughing again and again at the same joke on repeat all night long then this is the play for you
