Edgy, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You like energetic plays in a hip-hop flavor. Also a good exposure of Nigerian culture too

Don't see it if You are looking for something eye opening in terms of the plot

Busy set, Compartmentalised, Feels dated, Young adult, Great cast!

See it if Embrace/celebrate heritage, family values & self respect Some lighthearted & slapstick moments. Both lead actors are terrific!

Don't see it if young adult urban drama isn’t your preferred choice of theatre.

Gone Too Far!, certainly in the first act, is a very funny piece of drama that shines a light on modern day city life.

With Gone Too Far!, the National Youth Theatre and their Rep company present a powerful and compelling piece of theatre.
