Dylan Spokes, a fast-rising young star, arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities warning him of the repercussions of match fixing. Before he knows it, Dylan is forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of wildly colorful characters that include his ex-convict dad, saucy mum, quick-tongued manager, and a renowned gangster, to boot. It’s a fast-paced comedy thriller where, in an exciting twist, the tournament unfolds live on stage.
See it if you like British comedy. And if you can sit through a confusing first act so you can get to the funny second act.
Don't see it if you can't follow British accents and British vocabulary.
See it if you like heavy British accents and snooker (which is more fun than the script). Much of the cast is good, but acting & direction is uneven.
Don't see it if you want a play that makes a point, any point. It fails to be funny enough to make you forget its flaws.

See it if Snooker is your bag. It certainly ain't mine. This is not a sports-centric entertainment that transcends its milieu to speak higher truths.
Don't see it if Snooker is not your bag. The irony is: the televised snooker match in Act 2 is the highlight of the play and well done!
