I feared I was going to hyperventilate.
A triumph of split second timing.
It’s not sophisticated and it’s certainly over-extended; the show’s one-act Fringe origins aren’t hard to spot. Yet, along with the rest of the enthusiastic audience, I laughed continually.
Fiona Mountford, London Evening Standard
It is two parts farce, two parts pantomime, two parts every-trick-in-the-book hokum, two parts garbage and two parts wry, witty material which is sometimes utterly hilarious. The central conceit is that amateur dramatic societies can’t possibly do anything well and that all members of such societies are either pompous self-deluded wannabes or idiotic gurning morons. Like most fallacious and offensive notions, this central conceit provides a rich vein of potential hilarity.
