What the public say

‘I am raving about this show to anybody who will listen! Slick, clever, beautifully choreographed and so much fun. perfect for any age from 8-80: pure, unadulterated old-fashioned theatre.’

‘A brilliant innovative production of a classic play, high octane energy from all three performers, clever imaginative business which added to the comedy, a wonderful set. Congratulations to the actors and the director. A memorable opening show for the theatre.’

'Fun from start to finish. The acting was excellent. Every nuance, every action and the dialogue kept me laughing! The actors were brilliant, the little movements they made conveyed so much, and the window interactions and accents were my favourite. An unexpected gem!'
