Pointless, Cringeworthy, Dated

See it if you want to watch a very slowly unfolding and obvious narrative, that consistently failed to evoke any laughter through its derivative jokes

Don't see it if you want a show that feels like it was written for 2023. It feels out of date from the word go and sadly doesn’t fare better as it develops. Read more

Thought-provoking, Funny, Delightful

See it if This does have a bit of slapstick but it's a great story and shows the real darker side of human nature but in a laugh out loud way.

Don't see it if This is not a big production with minimal staging.

Wait for entertaining second part

See it if You like fast paced slapstick, but you'll need to wait for it

Don't see it if If you're offended by foul language and sexual themes, not likely to be suitable for under 16s

"The theatre plays ‘80s bangers over the sound system in the auditorium, at an ear-splitting volume, and one can't help but wonder if the excessive decibel level is to discourage audience members from discussing the play."

Theatre Weekly (UK)

“Windfall languishes a bit in the first act, but we draw the bonus ball in the second, as the comedy, foul language and exploration of human instincts ramp up to unexpectedly hilarious new levels. Shocking, funny and brutally unapologetic, you might just be on to a winner with a ticket for this one.”

"What we get is a piece that teaches us that money is the solution to everything – that it is the driving force of happiness and something we should all be striving for. Right now, it is not what we want to hear."

"With a strong ensemble and deeply human, if deeply demented, characters, this production makes a promising debut for what could easily become another long-runner for Mark Bell."

"A play of contrasts: a ho-hum first half, followed by a very entertaining second half, full of gratuitous cartoonish violence, conflict and chaos."

“ ‘Windfall’ can act as a clever look at how, whilst brutal honesty becomes the villain in our minds, more damage could be done hiding secrets and feigning a smile.”
