Great fun by Julia

A mix of Fawlty Towers and Acorn Antiques with all its mistimings and slapstick humour.

Amusing by Susan

My 9 year old couldn't quite get it that the acting was meant to be OTT and she lost the plot. It was lovely to watch her laugh out loud though.

Very funny. Suitable for all age groups.

Hilarious from start to finish by Emily

Make sure you take your seat a little early and watch the silly business begin before the show does. You will laugh out loud, especially if you've ever been in or seen an amateur production of any show ever.

Brilliant show, very funny, clever and laugh after laugh by Lisa

Very funny show, the warm up to the show was a taste of what was to come next. Be prepared for lots and lots of laughs and bring a box of tissues to wipe away the tears of laughter. The cast are very talented. Loved it!!!!

fast moving hilarious fun by MH

We loved this show which we first saw on tv. We work backstage in amdram so could relate to a lot. However someone with real genious thought up so many scenarios which had us laughing more or less non stop. only drawback the first corpse mumbled more than he was meant to. We thonk external pics could spoli dome surprises and were glad we had not looked at them.

by Julia

Wrong titlei by Tim

Just what we hoped for.Great bunch of actors need you need more .........i do think the chippy for the production needs a good look at

a real tonic by Mary

slick, fun, easy watching - real laughter throughout. we sat near the front which I recommend if you want to feel really part of this great production. however, it is only a small theatre so anywhere would be good. we loved it.

Laugh out loud farce by Louise

Very funny farce from the first moment. Ideal for families with teenagers - kids had never seen anything like it and could barely manage to stay on the seat they were laughing so much.

Sidesplitting by zita

Perfect timing and extreme antics makes this show a laugh out loud experience.

by Pearl

Wasn't to sure what to expect but as soon as the show started i was laughing and didn't stop for the whole show. It was brilliant so much talent from all the actors as well as stunts and the timing was excellent. I would defintely recommend this show . It appeals to all age groups.

Hilariously, the play to see...... by Joyce

A brilliant way to pass a cold and wet winter afternoon. Made you forget everything and laugh at the ridiculous. Go see........

by Karen

Very funny. Like typical 'farce' productions. A great evening - we laughed until we cried.

A great tonic of laughter.... by Paul

Very original and very funny.... you will not be disappointed...

show stopper by Teresa

This show was fun exciting and completely off the wall. It's a show you could see it again and again and find something new to laugh about.

Hilarious by Karen

This play was hilarious. The acting was fantastic and the plot funny and clever. I would highly recommend this play to anyone with a sense of humour. One of the most enjoyable nights out at the theatre I've ever had.

Murders will never be the same by H

A perfect parody of all that could go wrong in an amateur production, with more thrown in! Brilliant humour, split-second timing and hardly a predictable moment.

a must see for all ages by John

Arrive early!

Laugh out loud! by Denise

Very entertaining and amusing. The actors were engaged with the audience who laughed throughout the show. It is almost like stand-up comedy and comparisons to Fawltey Towers are accurate.

Enjoyable by Anthony

I would recommend this show to absolutely anyone. Within ten minutes I was in fits of laughter. Brilliant

slapstick at its best by Linda

Enjoyed view from the box which made evening special. Reminded me of Rick Mayall type comedy, god bless him.

So much laughter in a lovely little theatre by Tracey

I rarely see plays, but this had been recommended and I wasn't disappointed. Cast were interacting with stalls audience before start which I couldn't see, which was disappointing, as I was in dress circle but once show started I could see everything and didn't stop laughing. When things went wrong, and there were so many occasions, cast really tried to brush over it to great effect. Facial expressions (disbelief, horror etc) well acted. Now booked for peter pan goes wrong for stalls tickets.

Hilarious for all ages by Anthony

It's the funniest play I have ever seen

Very, Very Funny by Wesley

if you want to see a show to have a laugh you wont be disappointed. Excellent would go again.

Flamboyantly brilliant show! by Helen

A truly amazing show, very funny, very enjoyable and jolly good fun! A not to miss experience. Cant wait to see Peter Pan Goes Wrong.

very funny by Alison

A laugh a minute

A feel good and funny winter pick me up. by adele

Based on an amateur dramatic performance of a The Mousetrap with a touch of Hamlet pastiche-play, the production is a wonderfully timed combination of slapstick and comic delivery. There was a good warm-up session too. Actors seemed to engage a little better with the audience in the stalls and vice versa.

Is Unmissable a word? by Fiona

I arrived with no preconceptions as I didn't want to waste the experience, I had avoided reviews!! I laughed from before the start (not explaining why) right through to the end, except for the bits where I screamed . I have no intention of explaining anything as I don't want to spoil any surprises. Acting is astounding, timing perfect, characters played straight for the best effect, which is in fact stunning. Only advice - asthmatics take your inhaler

by suzanne

Really enjoyed show because it was so funny.

My cheeks hurt from laughing by Emma

A funny show in the same genre as Fawlty Towers - think Fawlty Towers live on stage. It didn't get too silly and the jokes did not become dull when they were repeated a couple of times. Recommend for anyone that wants an evening of comedy.

A good old fashioned "bellylaugh" . . . by Colin

In years gone by,London used to have comedy "farces" in the West End", but times change,so it was a real "treat" to experience a play that had me in hysterics from the opening scene. It was so cleverly done,and all the cast were excellent! I saw the play 2 months ago, and insisted my brother saw it,as l'd been raving about it ever since. I think l laughed even more,which considering l knew what was about to happen just shows how good the play/cast are!
