London Theatre
October 9th, 2019

I'm not sure writer-director Sean Foley knows quite where things are going wrong, so he keeps driving the comedy in ever more convoluted, desperate directions.

Overall, none of it seems calculated to leave an indelible impression. Yet for those in need of diverting fluff, it should suit well enough.
