Geeky, Hilarious, Entertaining, Quirky, Funny

See it if I love the fact that it didn’t shy away from showing just how Unapologetically Geeky 1 Characters was.A good laugh at a ridiculous situation

Don't see it if You don’t like seeing fun poked at certain stereotypes that we all play up to without meaning to. Has a lot of references to 80’s soaps

"Heartless, puerile and only intermittently amusing (who knew extreme sexual behaviour could be this tedious?), 'Horse-Play' neither truly shocks nor delights. Having said that, more unlikely shows than this have become solid cult hits.

"Despite the subject matter, this is a gentle, rather old-fashioned comedy ... The plot meanders through swathes of exposition before the curiously unsatisfying happy ending, and it’s vaguely ironic that a play featuring a character called Villainor has no real villain. This is a comedy without conflict, gently put to sleep by politeness."

"With Horse-Play Ian Hallard emerges like a 21st Century Joe Orton, penning a scandalous dark comedy that thrives on being ludicrous; all that was missing was Bobby Ewing emerging from the shower to tell us it had all been one crazy, but enjoyable, dream."

"In a show with not much to say, it’s a shame the gags don’t take the roof off."

"Slick delivery is needed in order to keep things engaging ... Perhaps this is something that’ll solve itself as the run continues and the performers feel more familiar with the material."
