Clive Anderson stars in a new comedy with audience participation about international peace talks.
Two countries are at war over a strip of land. When a ceasefire provides an opportunity for peace talks, diplomats, peacemakers and mediators try to reach an agreement as the threat of continued conflict looms large.
Former ambassador and Middle East peace negotiator Daniel Taub pens this new show alongside comedy writer Dan Patterson ('Mock the Week', 'Whose Line is it Anyway'), with TV presenter Clive Anderson facilitating this interactive show.
“There are a couple of uneven stretches, where the material and premise both become a little belaboured, but the running gags are a joy, the performances delight and overall this is a richly enjoyable piece of theatre.”
“Though insightful and frequently funny, Taub and Patterson’s script is unfocused and ploddingly paced. Never settling on a tone, the show wobbles uncertainly...with the characters spending more time chasing contrived punchlines than pursuing consistent goals of their own.”
“It’s a dragging few hours that leave you feeling blank. This could have been a worthwhile investigation into the secrets of how peace is decided. Right now, it’s a drooping, stale, attempt at an uncovering.”
