Absurdist fantasy, Good direction, Original, Quirky, Funny

See it if U like British style comical play that is meant to be bizarre, absurd, & silly fun fantasy. The script is very original & direction good.

Don't see it if U dislike farce over the top zany plot. U don’t like slightly outdated British humor or loud noises. It is worth seeing just for originality Read more

Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Quirky, Funny

See it if The height of absurdist drama performed by a cheeky cast with witty asides intrigues you. Reminiscent of Firesign Theater.

Don't see it if You want a simple plot or a straightforward premise.

Ongoing, Great staging, Quirky, Funny, Ambitious

See it if You like to support a large cast doing their best with an involved script. For a small stage they did a great job and created Atmosphere.

Don't see it if You don’t like experimental work. It is totally full of quirky characters and it may be difficult to identify with.
